Her practice reflects years of experience in corporate governance, regulatory compliance and disclosure, crises management, strategic international business, and anti-corruption and fraud examination. She has wide-ranging experience as a litigator, federal government regulator, business adviser, compliance facilitator, chief executive and operating officer, and board director. She often acts as outside general counsel to emerging and established companies, guiding them on legal and strategic business matters, and helping companies raise capital, often with exempt offerings under Regulations D, A+ and CF.

Clients often call on her combined business and legal background, along with her astute judgment and solutions-oriented, pragmatic approach.

A recognized authority on corporate governance and regulatory compliance affairs, Teresa has appeared on CNBC, Fox Business Channel and Bloomberg.
