Lecturer on Law
Carlos Teuscher is a Lecturer on Law and Director/Clinical Instructor of the Community Enterprise Project (CEP), a clinical program of the Transactional Law Clinics of Harvard Law School that serves clients who live and work in the Boston neighborhoods surrounding the Legal Services Center in Jamaica Plain.
At CEP, Carlos and Harvard Law student advocates represent low-income and immigrant communities on all aspects of transactional law, including entity formation, asset (including real estate) acquisitions and sales, contract review and negotiation, and IP registration. With input from community organizations and members, CEP has also prepared legal toolkits aimed at providing a larger impact to underserved populations. Topics for prior toolkits include starting a food truck in Boston, the legal implications of business ownership by immigrant entrepreneurs, a guide to creating worker cooperatives in Massachusetts, and a commercial lease toolkit for commercial tenants in Boston.
Prior to joining CEP, Carlos worked at the international law firms Linklaters LLP and Dechert LLP in New York, Hartford and Boston, where he focused his practice on domestic and international finance, M&A and commercial transactions, and working to increase the capacity of non-profit and local community organizations.
