Emiliano Marambio Catan LLM ’10, a scholar specializing in corporate law, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate governance, will join the NYU School of Law as an Assistant Professor of Law this summer.

Catan earned his first law degree in 2003 from Universidad Torcuato Di Tella in Buenos Aires, where he was editor of the Revista Argentina de Teoría Jurídica and received the gold medal for earning the highest GPA in his graduating class. He earned an LLM in Corporations from NYU Law in 2010, and received the George Colin Award for distinction in corporate law at graduation. Catan is currently scheduled to receive his PhD in Economics from NYU this summer.

Dean Trevor Morrison calls Catan a highly original and versatile scholar whose scholarship combines subject matter expertise with outstanding empirical skills. Referencing Catan’s recent work, which employs a novel empirical strategy for determining the effect (or lack thereof) of active poison pills, Morrison notes, “It is a breakthrough intervention in a debate that has engaged many leading scholars and practitioners, and shows that Emiliano is already making important contributions to the field.”
