Zachary Gubler joined the ASU law faculty in 2011 after having spent two years at Harvard Law School as a Climenko Fellow. Prior to joining the academy, Professor Gubler served as a law clerk to Judge Richard C. Wesley of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and worked as a corporate associate at Cravath, Swaine & Moore in New York City. He graduated in 2005 from Harvard Law School, where he served as an articles editor of the Harvard Law Review.

Professor Gubler's research interests lie in the areas of corporate law and financial and securities regulation. His recent work in these areas has focused on insider trading law and the institutional design of securities regulation. Professor Gubler has been published in the Georgetown Law Journal, the William and Mary Law Review, the Boston College Law Review and the University of Pennsylvania Law Review Online, among others, and his articles have been anthologized in the Corporate Practice Commentator (ed., Robert B. Thompson) and the Securities Law Review (ed., Donald C. Langevoort). Professor Gubler’s scholarship has been awarded the C-LEAF Junior Faculty Scholarship Prize by the Center for Law, Economics and Finance at George Washington University Law School, and he has been selected to present his scholarship at the Harvard/Stanford/Yale Junior Faculty Forum. Additionally, Professor Gubler has been invited to discuss his scholarship in the pages of the Wall Street Journal and in various blogs, including the Columbia Law School’s CLS Blue Sky Blog and the Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation.
