I advise a wide range of individuals and organizations in the public and private sector on issues related to my research and teaching including corporate governance, intellectual property, corporate finance, securities law, and international relations. I work with entrepreneurs and investors as well as investment firms. For example, I advised a leading Valley CEO on a proxy battle at a major semiconductor firm.

I have served as a board member of one publicly traded technology firm and two tech startups.

I also serve as an expert witness in cases involving securities, corporate governance, fiduciary duties, LLCs, IP, venture capital, startups and related issues. I have worked with firms such as Jenner and Block, SidleyAustin, and Sedgwick. Industry sectors include solar, memory, software, data centers, and airlines.

I have been particularly active advising the pension funds managed by union trustees on issues related to corporate governance and social responsibility. I have worked closely with the AFL-CIO, Change to Win and numerous unions on their capital markets and corporate social responsibility programs.
