Sebastian Lucier

SAN DIEGO (July 9, 2020) – The National Law Review featured a Mintz’s From the Edge Podcast Formation 101: Founder Stock and Vesting–the second installment of Mintz’s multi-part series addressing common questions relating to establishing a new enterprise. University of San Diego (USD) School of Law alumnus Sebastian E. Lucier, ’05 (JD), and Sam Effron discuss the issuance of shares to the founders, the mechanics and reasoning behind vesting, and some important tax consequences relating to share issuances. In addition to being a member of the corporate practice group at Mintz, Lucieris also an adjunct professor at USD School of Law where he teaches the Entrepreneurship Clinic, which connects law students with local businesses and entrepreneurs to assist with formation and related matters.

Mintz’s From the Edge Podcast is geared toward helping entrepreneurs thrive by learning from the experiences of executives in the technology, biotech, and finance fields.  On this podcast, Mintz partners invite investors and entrepreneurs to share how they were able to build successful companies and important lessons learned along the way. 

“The hope is that this podcast, and the series as a whole, provides insight to new entrepreneurs and demystifies the formation process, and is a useful tool for those interested in starting a business and who don’t have access to a resource like the USD Entrepreneurship Clinic.”

Mintz is a Law Firm Challenge participant and has 14 University of San Diego (USD) School of Law alumni in its San Diego office. Founded in Boston more than 85 years ago, Mintz is an Am Law 100 firm with 500 attorneys and a global reach with offices in Boston, Los Angeles, New York, San Diego, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., London, and Stamford.
