About Stephen

Learn Stephen’s areas of practice.

I advise startups, public companies, investment firms and individuals on strategy, governance, IP, finance, and international relations. I am an experienced expert witness in both federal and state court matters.


I help boards and CEOs navigate the complex road map that startups, public companies and non-profit organizations now face. I help founders understand and implement key early stage decisions including those related to legal, financial, and governance issues. 


I am an experienced board member. I have served on the board of two startups and one public technology company (serving on audit committee and chaired compensation committee of the latter). I am an experienced expert witness on corporate law and other issues.


I was an associate at Latham & Watkins and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati and now teach business law. My academic research looks at financial markets, corporate governance and the international economy.
