Andrew Tuch

Professor of Law

Professor Tuch teaches and writes in financial and securities regulation and corporate law. He uses conceptual insights from economics and finance to examine how firm structure contributes to financial misconduct and financial instability. His work also examines the legal and non-legal regulation of banks and bankers; comparative issues in corporate law and financial regulation; and developments in private equity firms and transactions. His scholarship has appeared in leading journals in the United States and overseas. His article, Reassessing Self-Dealing: Between No Conflict and Fairness, was selected for the 2019 Yale/ Stanford/ Harvard Junior Faculty Forum. He is a two-time recipient of the Brudney Prize for the Best Paper in Corporate Governance at 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. His working papers and published scholarship can be accessed here.

Before joining WashULaw, Professor Tuch practiced corporate law in the New York and London offices of Davis Polk & Wardwell. He currently serves on the National Adjudicatory Council of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).
