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. He completed his legal studies by obtaining an LLM in International Business Law from the London School of Economics & Political Science.

Re: Edward Kleinbard

Edward Kleinbard was quoted on how to distribute taxes across income group. He commented on Messrs. Saez and Zucman’s book on this topic. "Book is best appreciated as a window into the burdens imposed at the very top end and there, of course, the book is devastating” in showing low tax rates, said Kleinbard. “It’s simply not asking or answering the separate question, which is: What is the net well-being of America’s lowest-income people?"
