Herzberger coauthors book during remote summer externship
Second-year student Emina Herzberger participated in a virtual Corporate Counsel Externship this past summer with Orange – one of the world’s leading telecommunications companies – and coauthored the book Guide to Listing in Belgium. She worked remotely with alumnus Johan Van den Cruijce (LL.M.’94) in Orange/Atlas Services’ office in Brussels.
The quick-reference style guidebook focuses on specific issues and continuing obligations that a Belgian public company may encounter and includes a wide range of relevant corporate law and governance topics.
In addition to publishing the book, she worked on a very detailed company valuation project analyzing U.S. Tax Court caselaw to calculate marketability discounts (DLOM) and control discounts (DLOC) of private companies, which identified 25 variables that potentially have an impact on court decisions.
Herzberger’s 11-week externship was supported by the law school’s summer fellowship program. Notably, she is the school’s first Corporate Counsel extern to publish a book during an externship.
