About Steven

I am the founder and CEO of OliverClarity. I passed the bar at age 24 and - armed with everything there is to know in the world about both the law and running a business - immediately started a solo practice in a city in which I'd never spent more than a weekend. Though somewhere around age 25 or 26 I became acutely aware of the myth of my omniscience, I spent the next 21 years learning how to be both a lawyer and a business owner. I have consulted with and represented businesses of all sizes and in myriad industries, been published in academic journals, taught courses on law for attorneys representing businesses and their owners, been the featured guest on numerous podcasts for entrepreneurs, and am a former radio show host. I live and work in New York City and still occasionally operate under the mistaken impression that I know everything.
