Andrew Tuch

Professor of Law

Professor Tuch uses conceptual insights from economics and finance to examine issues in corporate law and governance, securities regulation, and financial regulation. He has published widely in the United States, England, and Australia. Two of his articles – Multiple Gatekeepers and Reassessing Self Dealing: Between Fairness and No Conflict – have been selected among the top 10 corporate and securities articles in national polls of law professors conducted by Corporate Practice Commentator.

Professor Tuch holds LLM and SJD degrees from Harvard Law School, where he was a Fulbright Scholar, a Fellow of the Program on Corporate Governance, and an Olin Fellow in Law and Economics. At Harvard, he was a two-time recipient of the Brudney Prize for the Best Paper in Corporate Governance. Before joining Washington University, Professor Tuch was a Lecturer and Senior Lecturer (with tenure equivalent) in the Law Faculty at the University of Sydney and, prior to that, practiced corporate law at Davis Polk & Wardwell in New York and London. He has held visiting positions at Duke, IDC Herzliya, and the Max Plank Institute of Comparative and International Private Law. He has served on the National Adjudicatory Council of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the primary regulator of broker-dealers in the United States.
