He is a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Commercial Biotechnology, a leading international publication for bioscience business professionals, and a member of the Lexis-Nexis@Securities Customer Advisory Board.
"I am excited to join Olshan where I will continue to build my practice focused on representing mid-market and smaller publicly-traded companies and the investment banks and investors providing capital to them," said Mr. Feldman. "Olshan has an outstanding reputation as the premier corporate boutique in this space and I look forward to working with our clients in delivering exceptional service."
Mr. Feldman was selected for inclusion in the 2013 New York Metro edition of Super Lawyers for Securities & Corporate Finance and Mergers & Acquisition and has written over 40 articles and has lectured extensively on corporate and securities law issues, including serving as a moderator at the SEC’s Small Business Capital Formation Forum.
