Adam Philipp is a Partner with Cedar Brook Group. He helps counsel a select group of corporate executives, professionals, business owners, and other high-net-worth individuals and families on investments and a wide range of financial planning issues.
Adam received a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science and history from Northwestern University. He received a law degree from The Ohio State University’s Moritz College of Law, which he attended on a full-tuition Michael E. Moritz Merit Scholarship, graduated cum laude, and served on the law review. In law school, Adam was also a legislative fellow in Governor John Kasich’s office, and for two years he held a Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowship to study the Turkish language and Middle Eastern area studies. As an attorney, Adam clerked for Judge Raymond Moore on the United States District Court for the District of Colorado in Denver and then became a corporate and capital markets associate with Jones Day and Calfee, Halter & Griswold. In these experiences, Adam maintained an active pro bono practice. His longstanding passion for investing, his desire to help others achieve their financial goals, and a dash of serendipity led him to Cedar Brook.
Born and raised in the Cleveland area, Adam is passionate about Northeast Ohio and the region’s vast potential. He feels fortunate to have worked with and for the two people who inspired him to attend law school, Dick Pogue and Senator George Voinovich. Adam volunteers with Urban Squash Cleveland and serves on Chagrin Falls’ Valley Art Center’s board of trustees. He also coaches baseball as a member of University School’s staff. Adam enjoys international affairs and foreign policy and he is a Council on Foreign Relations term member. He also enjoys attending American Council on Germany and Cleveland Council on World Affairs events.
Both Adam and his wife, Mariam, grew up on the east side. They currently reside in Shaker Heights with their young children, Arthur and Lily.
