Bostrom, who has been with Freddie since 2006, will be co-head of SNR’s global financial institutions and funds practice. He is expected to make the move in mid-August, and will split his time between the firm’s Washington and New York offices.
Elliott Portnoy, global CEO of SNR, said Bostrom’s vast experience would be a great asset to the firm.
“It’s very rare that a law firm is able to find someone who brings leadership and the breadth of experience that Bob has,” Portnoy said.
Last month, The National Law Journal ranked Bostrom as one of Washington’s most influential in-house attorneys. During his time at Freddie, Bostrom helped negotiate with the U.S. Treasury Department on a plan for a federal takeover of the mortgage company.
Before heading to Freddie, Bostrom was a partner in Winston & Strawn’s New York office.
John Dye, the principal deputy general counsel for Freddie, will serve as the interim counsel while the mortgage giant searches for a replacement.
