Prior to graduating from law school, Professor Meyers was a senior accountant at the international accounting firm of KPMG Peat Marwick. While at KPMG, he earned his certified public accountant license and was responsible for auditing the financial statements of several Fortune 500 companies and regional broker-dealers.
