Longtime business litigator Joel A. Feuer has been appointed executive director of the Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy at UCLA School of Law, the school announced this week.
Feuer, a partner at Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher LLP since 1989, has handled a broad range of complex business law matters and has regularly counseled corporations and their directors and officers on corporate governance matters and transactions.
Feuer served as co-chair of the litigation department for Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher's Los Angeles and Century City offices and as one of the leaders of the firm's securities litigation practice group.
Feuer will join the law school Sept. 1.
"We are delighted to welcome Joel Feuer to our law school," said Rachel F. Moran, the school's dean. "His real-world experience in practice will be invaluable in furthering the work of the Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy and in helping to prepare the next generation of business leaders."
Feuer graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor's degree from Pomona College in 1976. He then attended University College, Oxford, and received an honors degree in politics, philosophy and economics.
He earned his law degree from the UC Berkeley School of Law, where he served as the Supreme Court editor of the California Law Review. Following law school, he became U.S. District Court Judge Pamela Rymer's first law clerk.
Feuer is a frequent speaker on corporate litigation issues. He is on the board of directors of the Constitutional Rights Foundation and has been a member of the board of trustees of Pomona College since 2011.
This fall, he will become a member of Pomona College's executive committee and chair of the trusteeship committee.
