focuses primarily on corporate and securities law and, more specifically, the application
of non-economic principles and norms to these fields. Before joining the Hofstra faculty in 2006, I served in the Complex Global Litigation Group of Morgan Stanley &
Co. Incorporated as Vice-President and Counsel. In this position, I supervised investigations,
litigations, and regulatory inquiries affecting Morgan Stanley’s investment
banking franchise. Prior to that, I practiced as a litigation associate at the New York office of

before state courts, federal courts, and arbitration panels; and in appeals before
the Third Circuit, the D.C. Circuit, and the U.S. Supreme Court. From 2000 – 2003, I also served on the Committee on Professional and Judicial Ethics of the Association
of the Bar of the City of New York.
