Fur Friends of Waterstone

At Waterstone, our team is such an integral aspect of our company, including our fur teammates, Honey and Missy. Our new office is located right down from the street from the Anti Cruelty Society, a wonderful organization unique to Chicago. Founded in 1899, the Anti Cruelty Society provides a safe home for all types of animals who are in need. In addition, they also provide free animal behavior advice, a low cost clinic to make sure the animals get the medial attention they need and offer an amazing adoption experience. 

During our afternoon with the organization, we made toys for the cats and dogs, toured the entire facility and learned about their history. And for the best part, we helped socialize a new litter of kittens and a litter of puppies! A purrrfect afternoon of team building and service. If you’re looking for a new fur friend, make sure to check out the Anti Cruelty Society!

Our Cannabis Practice

Waterstone is pleased to announce the launch of our Cannabis Practice!

This Practice is important to us, because our personal and professional beliefs align with a mission toward cannabis advocacy, education and social justice. We also have a passion for working within emerging markets, and regardless of industry experience, the cannabis space needs operational professionals who know how to build and/or contribute to the growth of the business.

Identifying leadership and operational talent within the cannabis industry can be complex, and we help businesses overcome those challenges.

Our deep recruiting experience across diverse highly regulated industries uniquely positions us to partner with our clients as they build and scale a healthy company.

Catch us at IC3 in NYC on October 22nd The Arcview Group forum in Las Vegas November 12th-13th!

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago’s Spare a Night Out

Over the past couple of years, a few of the Waterstone team members have been involved in a very caring organization, Big Brothers Big Sisters.

This year, Waterstone proudly participated in the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago’s Spare a Night Out event, which raises money to provide under privileged children with a mentor. The mentors serve as a stable relationship in the children’s lives to enrich them through social events, develop problem solving skills and ultimately graduate high school. As a team, we raised $1,800 and 100% of the funds raised stay right here in the Chicago system. We thoroughly enjoyed raising funds for a great cause and celebrating the success at the bowling event. Overall, the event raised over $210,000, way to go BBBS Chicago!



Waterstone team has been supporting the Lincoln Park Community Shelter for several years now. Our team was excited to participate in the 2017 Taste of Fall event meeting other supporters and members.

LPCS The Lincoln Park Community Shelter (LPCS) is a comprehensive social service agency serving adult men and women experiencing homelessness. A highly individualized, client-driven approach is a hallmark of the organization that serves between 300 and 400 individuals each year. All of the LPCS endeavors are guided by the values of accountability, self-determination and community engagement. The five programs of the LPCS work to address the challenges of homelessness at every point in the housing continuum.



Women’s March on Chicago (WMC) is an organization advocating for women’s rights, promoting intersectional feminism, and challenging the political system regarding issues affecting women. WMC connects us as everyday champions of human rights for ourselves/others in our diversity. When we stand together, our strength multiplies and our voices must be heard. Fairness, justice, and equality require rigorous defense and promotion, and are not yet won. We recognize lack of fairness, justice, and equality are suffered by some much more than others. We need to work until fairness, justice, and equality are reality in all parts of society.



Established by Betsy Peterson in 1996, The Children’s Heart Foundation (CHF) is the country’s leading national organization solely committed to congenital heart research funding.

In addition, CHF and the American Heart Association have collaboratively funded 14 research projects with nearly $1.8 million through the Congenital Heart Defect Research Awards, bringing CHF's total amount funded to over $9.6 million. CHF is a national 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization, whose mission is to support the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of congenital heart defects.

The Waterstone team was proud to support the cause and to honor and remember the millions who have been impacted by congenital heart disease
