Assisting entrepreneurs and small businesses with business structuring, entity formation, organizational and operating agreements, commercial and corporate transactions, financing and investments, intellectual property, employment issues, pre-litigation dispute resolution, and other issues typically faced by emerging enterprises
After graduating from law school, I worked for approximately three years as an attorney in the M&A group of Shearman & Sterling LLP in their New York and London offices. My work there focused on business combination transactions, corporate governance, and general corporate matters, though I also advised nonprofit organizations and social enterprises regarding transactional matters.
I left that firm to teach as a Lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School for two academic years. I codirected and taught the Corporate Lab Transactional Clinic, instructing and guiding students as they performed transactional legal services for large corporations and entrepreneurs. I also taught courses in contract drafting and professional skills.
I then moved back to New York to join the New York University School of Law, where I am a Senior Fellow in the Law and Business program, serve as a Supervising Attorney in the Business Law Transactions Clinic, and develop and teach courses in contract drafting and entrepreneurship law. In the clinic, I teach and oversee students as they perform transactional legal services for nonprofit organizations and social enterprises.
