Samuel Tan, Berkeley Accounting PhD Candidate


I am a PhD Candidate in Accounting at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley.

My primary research interests are at the intersection of accounting and the legal and regulatory environments. In ongoing work, my coauthors and I leverage institutional detail and novel data to examine the impact of key features of the legal environment and the role of law firms and legal counsel in the accounting process. I am also interested in IPO pricing and performance, and the application of network analysis to accounting research.
