Firm Profile Overview (with cross-references to main sections of website):  

I.  Generally:  

A.  Main commitments:

(1) Practice:  My law practice exceeds 50 years.  It began with a dual commitment to law and to physics (applied)/engineering. On the law commitment,  see "Law Practice" on Navigation Bar (Lawyer (business law; business taxation; inernational dimensions)).  On the physics/enginering commitment,  see  “gallery 4a: Army Ballistic Missile Agency (NASA),  important road not taken" (Research Engineer (rocket/missile guidance, control, tracking, design, instrumentation)) and "gallery 4b: other roads not taken; road taken" (by me/others) on Navigation Bar.    Cf. "gallery 8: law firm; consultant/lecturer; corporate/engineering (E.I.T.)" on Navigation Bar.  Cf. also "gallery 11: Professional Engineering" on Navigation Bar.

(2)   Current Commitments Limited to Writting:  My main commitments currently are to complete written works in progress. Therefore, the Firm has not been accepting matters from new clients except in extraordinary circumstances, nor have I sought to teach any courses.

(3)  Teaching Business Law and Tax:   A major commitment was teaching business law and tax at Columbia University, Graduate School of Business (1970-1995), and on visiting professorships at Stanford University, Graduate School of Business (1978) and Harvard University, Graduate School of Business (1981).  See  "curriculum vitae" at "TEACHING POSITIONS/ACTIVITIES" on Navigation Bar.

(4)  Counsel to Delson & Gordon:    For 15 of the 25 years at Columbia, a substantial committment was made as counsel to Delson & Gordon, N.Y.C. law firm (1973-1987).  See "gallery 8: law firm; consulting/lecturer; corporate/engineering (E.I.T.)" on Navigation Bar.

(5)  Importance of Communication Skills to MBA Curriculum:   Another important longstanding commitment has been to emphasize the importance of verbal (written and oral) communication skills to MBA students.  See "curriculum vitae" at "TEACHING/EXAMINATION PRACTICES" on" Navigation bar.  See also "gallery 1b: publishing houses" at "William Safire/Times Books, NY Times Book Co (letter on verbal skills);" galery 5: unusual publications/work" at "William Safire letter," gallery 7: commentary," at "style manual,” at “Safire letter,” and at “importance of verbal skills” on Navigation Bar. 

(6)  Current Commitments Short List:    My main commitments currently are to complete written works in progress, the highest priority of which are: (1) an article updating my article on the Eurodollar market published in 71 California Law Review 1492 (1983); (2) an article related to the Eurodollar article update suggesting a way of resolving the partisanship/gridlock in the United States Congress on lingering issues related to financial institutions/industry; (3) a textbook on international business law and taxation (approximately 1600 pages) to be submitted to publishing houses.

C.  Law practice:  The Firm's law practice comprises the following four components:

1.  Clients:  My practice, whether as a solo practitioner, inside counsel (legal department, large multinational), outside counsel (associate (law firm); of counsel (law firm), as the case may have been (see gallery 8: law firm; consulting)), has focused on business law and taxation, including certain international dimensions of these areas. It has included experience with close corporations, large multinationals, and limited liability companies. It has engaged in training programs on business law and tax for commercial banks, investment banks, and other organizations.  See also "curriculum vitae" at "PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES" on Navigation Bar.

The practice is currently  focused on completing written works in progress.  See "works in progress" on Navigation Bar.  I have placed a top priority on these efforts to allow an adequate amount of time to complete these works.  Therefore, I have not sought, nor engaged in, any current teaching of courses, given the time commitment involved.  See, e.g., "curriculum vitae" at "TEACHING/EXAMINATION PRACTICES" on Navigation Bar.  See also, e.g., "curriculum vitae" at "TEACHING POSITIONS/ACTIVITIES" on Navigation Bar; and at "COURSES TAUGHT/SUPERVISED" on Navigation Bar.   Also, I have not been accepting matters from new clients except in extraordinary circumstances.  For an email response to a recent potential client's inquiry on a new matter, see, e.g., "gallery 12: new-matter inquiry" on Navigation Bar.

2.  Teaching:  The practice also has included a major commitment for 25 years (1970-1995) to teaching business law and tax at Columbia University, Graduate School of Business, with visiting professorships at Stanford University, Graduate School of Business (1978) and Harvard University, Graduate School of Business (1981).  See "curriculum vitae" at "TEACHING POSITIONS/ACTIVITIES" on Navigation Bar.

I also supervised Independent Study courses, usually one or two each term, at Columbia University (1970-1995), at Stanford University (1978), and at Harvard University (1981), in which each student would complete a research paper on a business law and taxation topic. These were strictly voluntary, and highly worthwhile, efforts, both for me and the student, and not part of my classsroom teaching assignments.

See also “gallery 6: Columbia University” on Navigation Bar. Humor in class, when possible, was encouraged as an aid to a learning environment.  See, e.g., "gallery 10: work/life balance; lighter sides (humor; drawings, oil paintings)"  on Navigation Bar. 

3.  Research; published works: 

     a. Current works in progress:  I also have been committed to the publication of the results of my legal research on practical legal subjects that were borne out of experience with clients or teaching, or both, in the subject covered.  See "curriculum vitae" at "RESEARCH & PUBLICATIONS" on Navigation Bar.   See also: "Publications (with links)" on Navigation Bar; “Publications (chronological)” on Navigation Bar; “gallery 1a: excerpts of publications (bar associations; law reviews)" on Navigation Bar; "gallery 1b: excerpts of publications (publishing houses)” on Navigation Bar; “gallery 3: editorships” on Navigation Bar; “gallery 5: unusual publications” on Navigation Bar; “gallery 7: commentary” on Navigation Bar.  Cf. “posts” on Navigation Bar.  

The Firm is currently concentrating on works in which I have had a longstanding interest.  Most of these works have remained incomplete by reason of prior major and primary commitments to clients and to teaching.  See also "work in progress" on Navigation Bar. 

I am focused on complleting an article on the Eurodollar market revisited.  This proposed article is a renewed analysis of the Eurodollar market undertaken in my article published in 71 California Law Review 1492 (1983).   It requires substantial editing to shorten its length acceptable to most law reviews/journals.

The draft of this book -- International Business Law and Tax -- is also an important work in progress that I plan to submit for consideration by, e.g., a publishing house, a university press, or other appropriate publisher.  I may consider an e-publisher (self publishing or using a third party).   Some contributing authors have been, and others will be, invited to participate in this work. It is substantially complete (1500 pages (apprx.)).  I have been working off and on this book since 1993 or so; it is substantially completed (as would be expected by now).  I hope that it will soon be in satisfactory shape to be submitted to publishing houses.

The other works in progress will be completed in due course so long as I am able.

     b. Completed works; recognition:  The Firm's publications have been fortunate to have been recognized/cited from time to time by practitioners and academics/professors.   See "selected references to publications" on Navigation Bar.  The Firm's related activities have also received a modest degree of attention.   See "other references" on the Navigation Bar.  See also: "Publications (with links)" on Navigation Bar; “Publications (chronological)” on Navigation Bar; “gallery 1a: excerpts of publications (bar associations. & law reviews)" on Navigation Bar; "gallery1b: excerpts of publications (publishing houses)” on Navigation Bar; “gallery 3: editorships” on Navigation Bar; “gallery 5: unusual publications” on Navigation Bar; “gallery 7: commentary” on Navigation Bar.  Cf. “posts” on Navigation Bar. 

The following selected publishing houses or journal have published works in which either I contributed a chapter, reviewed a chapter, or with whom I was a consultant/lecturer on their educational programs: West Thomson Reuters; Warren, Gorham & Lamont; Prentice Hall (Pearson); Harcourt, Brace, Jovanovich; Harper & Row; Wadsworth Publishing Company; Times Books (New York Times Book Co.); Journal of Accounting.  See "gallery 1b: excerpts of publications (publishing houses)" on Navigation Bar.  See also "firm description (selected details)" at "Current Practice: Legal writings (commercial and pro bono)/research" on Navigation Bar for works that I have been unable to complete.

The following selected organizations (bar associations and university law reviews) have published various works of mine: N.Y. State Bar Assn.: American Bar Assn.; Business Lawyer (ABA); Univ. of California Law Review; Urban Lawyer (ABA-Univ. of Missouri (Kansas City School of Law); Tax Lawyer (ABA-Georgetown Univ. Law Center); ABA (General Practice Section).  See "gallery 1a: excerpts of publications (bar associations & law reviews)" on Navigation Bar. 

4.  Pro bono publico work:   I have also tried to devote time to pro bono work.  See, e.g., "curriculum vitae" at “PRO BONO PUBLICO AND OTHER VOLUNTARY/BENEFICIAL ACTIVITIES” on Navigation Bar.  See also “gallery 9: pro bono; volunteer/beneficial activities” on Navigation Bar.


D.  Main interests: 

1.  Business/law and physics/engineering:   My interest in physics/engineering and then business eventually coexisted with, an interest in law.  See, e.g., "curriculum vitae" at "SELECTED EDUCATION" on Navigation Bar.  I finally have concentrated my time on teaching law, practicing law, and, in both capacities, researching law.  I have focused on issues of business law and taxation, including certain international dimensions of these areas.

2.  Importance of business law:  I have long emphasized the importance of business law for anyone involved with business transactions.  I also have emphasized the importance of business law courses in the curriculum of business schools.  See, e.g., "gallery 7: commentary" at "importance of business law" on Navigation Bar.  See also, "gallery 7: commentary" at "role of law in business and society (ALSB)" on Navigation Bar.

3.  Importance of verbal skills:  I have equally stressed the importance of verbal (written and oral) skills in business, and I have stressed, similar to my position on business law, that the importance of a verbal skills course be recognized by a business school's makining such a course an integral part of its curriculum.  See, e.g., "gallery 7: commentary" at "verbal skills importance" and at "style manual on verbal skills" on Navigation Bar.  See also, e.g.,  "gallery 1b: more excerpts" at "William Safire letter and verbal skills" on Navigation Bar. 

In the classes that I taught I likewise emphasized the importance of communication skills. For example, I distributed a so-called Style Manual to students to suur their interest.  See, e.g., "gallery 7: commentary" at "style manual on verbal skills" on Navigation Bar.  See also, e.g.,  "gallery 6: Columbia University" at "style manual for class" on Navigation Bar.  In addition, examinations (midterm and final exam) were essay only, and during the term, students were required to submit their analyses of various legal problems in a business context (usually six or so case/problems for the course) in written form for evaluation by me.  See "curriculum vitae" at "TEACHING/EXAMINATION PRACTICES" on Navigation Bar.



II. Legal experience (transactional): 

My experience as a legal practitioner has been mainly on transactions for individuals and on behalf of various business organizations (e.g., close corporations, large multinational corporations, and limited liability companies). This transactional element of my practice has been engaged also in training programs on business law and tax for commercial banks, investment banks, and other organizations.  See "gallery 8: law firm; consulting" on Navigation Bar.  See also "curriculum vitae" at "PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES" on Navigation Bar each of the following: at "Industrial Corporation," at "Law Firm," at "University," and at "Consulting and Lecturing."  See also, e.g., "gallery 7: commentary" at "practical experience in legal education" on Navigation Bar.  Humor in these activities, when possible, was helpful, at times, in building a closer relationship than otherwise with business colleagues and even in negotiating, e.g., contractual terms with counterparty.  See, e.g., "gallery 10: work/life balance; lighter sides (humor; drawings, oil paintings)"  on Navigation Bar (some examples).    

 

III.  Other professional activities: 

I have been engaged in other professional activities (e.g., American Bar Association, New York State Bar Association, New York City Bar Association, New York Academy of Science, American Association for the Advancement of Science, New York Professional Engineers).  See "curriculum vitae" at "PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES" at "Bar Associations" and "Other Organizations" on Navigation Bar.

On published materials, acknowledgment of (and gratefulness for) students' help is given in the separate author's footnote of the published work. 


Dedicated to the memory of

Lieutenant Benjamin Ghetzler; USS Reuben James (DD-245)

This tribute is intended also as a testament to the others lost on the sinking of the Reuben James, and because the song The Sinking of the Reuben James was later amended to be timeless, nor should we forget the sacrifice of those lost in protecting our nation-- before and after the sinking -- or the loss felt by their families -- from which all Americans have benefited in their liberty and pursuit of happiness.
