Bob Sencer is the founder of Sencer Legal, a practice he started in 2016 after nearly three decades as an associate at prestigious law firms and general counsel for two highly successful multi-national companies. With this extensive and diverse experience, Sencer is able to provide his clients robust and insightful representation across a broad range of matters and industries, including commercial agreements and transactions; business entity formation, governance, acquisition and dissolution; advertising and marketing; e-commerce; intellectual property licensing; design and implementation of brand management and anti-counterfeiting programs; employment; real estate; new market entry; and insurance. As a result of his many years representing corporate boards, as well as serving as corporate secretary and director for a number of domestic and foreign companies, Sencer is also able to provide his clients guidance on general corporate matters, including the legal duties of corporate officers and directors, and compliance with laws governing the organization and maintenance of business entities.

In addition to his legal practice, Sencer is a lecturer in law at USC’s Gould School of Law, where he teaches a course on Business Organizations.

Sencer earned a BA in sociology from UC Berkeley and a JD from USC’s Gould School of Law, where he was invited to participate in the school’s Moot Court Honors Program.

Re: Jonathan Handel

Jonathan Handel was quoted on Pete Davidson's nondisclosure agreement for attending his comedy shows, barring the audience from speaking about his shows. Handel mentioned that successfully suing a random fan for $1 million would be nearly impossible. “The optics of going to court and suing one of your fans is really pretty ugly,” Handel said. “It would be foolish to do that.”
