Florida State / College of Law / Law, Business and Economics / Kelli A. Alces

Kelli A. Alces, the Loula Fuller and Dan Myers Professor, formerly practiced withGardner, Carton & Douglas in Chicago. Her scholarship focuses on the intersection of corporate law and bankruptcy law, with a special emphasis on corporate governance in bankruptcy and the strategic interactions between creditors and shareholders in financially distressed companies. She will be a visiting associate professor at The University of Chicago Law School during the fall 2014 semester.

“We’ve seen in the last few years that problems with corporate governance can affect the entire economy. It’s important for students to have an understanding of how public corporations and the securities markets work. I hope my students will gain an appreciation for how notions of fiduciary obligation shape corporate governance and how investors discipline and influence management.”
