Introducing Guest Blogger Darian Ibrahim
I’m pleased to welcome Darian Ibrahim, of Wisconsin, as a return guest blogger for the month of March.
Darian’s current research analyzes and compares the various financing options that are available to high-tech start-ups, including angel finance and venture capital. He has recently written on on angel investing, Delaware corporate law, and a macro look at the field of law and entrepreneurship in the Vanderbilt, Iowa, and Arizona law reviews. He teaches classes in business organizations (public corporations), securities regulation, and a seminar in law and entrepreneurship.
Professor Ibrahim is a 1999 graduate of Cornell Law School (magna cum laude), where he was Articles Editor of the Cornell Law Review, Order of the Coif, and a recipient of the Fredric H. Weisberg Prize for Constitutional Law. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from Clemson University in 1996 (magna cum laude) and was the recipient of a number of honors, including an internship with Dow Chemical Company.
During law school, Professor Ibrahim was a summer associate in the Mergers and Acquisitions Group at Cravath, Swaine & Moore in New York. After graduation, he was an associate in the Corporate and Securities Group at Troutman Sanders in Atlanta, where he focused on mergers and acquisitions and private placements of securities for high-tech start-ups. Following his law firm experience, Professor Ibrahim clerked for Chief Justice Norman S. Fletcher of the Georgia Supreme Court.
