Tamara C. Belinfanti

Professor Belinfanti’s scholarship focuses on corporate governance system design and the relationship between corporations and communities. In 2013, Professor Belinfanti was named an Aspen Ideas Scholar for her work on the roles and rights of corporations in the broader societal sphere. She has written on corporate governance in the context of the proxy advisory industry, corporate purpose, executive compensation, and most recently shareholder rights and stewardship. She is frequently invited as an expert to present her work at both academic and industry conferences. Professor Belinfanti teaches Corporations, Contracts, and Corporate Practice, which is a transactional skills course that she developed.

Prior to joining the New York Law School faculty, Professor Belinfanti was a corporate attorney at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP, where she counseled domestic and international clients on general corporate and U.S. securities regulation matters, and was co-editor of the securities law treatise, U.S. Regulation of the International Securities and Derivatives Market (Aspen, 2003).

Professor Belinfanti is a Board Trustee of the Brooklyn Museum. She received her Juris Doctor, cum laude, from Harvard Law School in 2000.
