An Economist’s Courtroom Bonanza

Great profile on Kiwi David Teece. The one thing it doesn’t mention is the incredible job he did with Stephen Tindall in creating KEA.

Meet David Teece, renowned expert on lots of things and pioneer of a lucrative consulting niche that has transformed business litigation. The University of California, Berkeley, business-school professor is one of America’s busiest expert witnesses, billing corporate clients as much as $850 an hour for his insights. He has built a publicly traded 1,300-person research shop, LECG Inc., that does much of the legwork for him and other economists, so they can zoom through more assignments.

And this made me smile… “And his New Zealand accent worked nicely on the witness stand; it made him sound erudite without being pompous.”
