I am a lawyer, personal trainer, MBA, and creative. I have a diverse range of passions which I commit to without reservation or limitation.
GQ featured my life as a mergers & acquisitions lawyer who found perfection in preparing women around the world to win the Miss Universe contest.
“Lee’s edge is that he always does his homework. His work ethic is punishing.” — GQ, “Mr. Miss Universe”
In 2017, I became the first and only member to work out at every Equinox gym in the world, and I have continued to defend that title across 106+ clubs from San Diego to London.
From 2018 to 2020, I have served as the COO of Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez’s offices.
I co-created the #1 podcast in 2018, “The Corp,” with Mr. Rodriguez; produced his first two seasons on ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball” (where he became the first talent in history to be shared by two networks during the MLB season); and led dozens of investments (from seed to Series D) and consumer goods launches. I was responsible for all aspects of the development of Ms. Lopez’s beauty ventures, including the launch of the #2 fragrance in 2019, “Promise.”
My career in corporate law began with Skadden, Arps in 2006 and continued with Sullivan & Cromwell and Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz. During those years, I worked on three of the largest mergers & acquisitions in history and advised numerous CEOs and boards on their most consequential decisions. I also co-authored several dealmaking articles, including a leading guide to disclosing financial projections in M&A deals.
I received my BA from Stanford, JD from Yale Law School and MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
My thesis on electing women to executive positions in Latin America received the Firestone Medal, Stanford’s highest honors for undergraduate research. I also have a CPT from NASM, an AJP from the Gemological Institute of America and am a notary public and licensed RE broker in NY State.
I have lectured or taught courses on topics pertaining to law, entertainment and political science at Yale College, Harvard Law, Stanford Business and NYU Law.
I have never lost a sushi eating contest and very much aspire to raise two Huskies in the Upper West Side.
