Jeff is at the forefront of automated vehicle law and has written a treatise on the legal aspects of automated vehicles, entitled Automated Vehicle Law: Legal Liability, Regulation, and Data Security, published by the American Bar Association. He seeks to help industry and governmental entities understand the laws regulating and governing connected and automated vehicles and the deployment of connected and automated technologies; manage and mitigate their liability risks in manufacturing and deploying connected and automated technologies, ADAS, or other technologies that interact with connected vehicles, such as V2I; analyze and address data collection and possession; and create new strategic partnerships, joint ventures, as well as assist in mergers and acquisitions within this space.

Jeff has penned articles on automated vehicles as they relate to diverse aspects of law, including products liability law, civil liability, regulation, criminal law, and ethics. He has spoken about the interplay between automated vehicles and the law at conferences and to groups throughout the United States and internationally, and people have traveled from as far as Japan to meet with him about legal aspects of automated vehicles.

Beyond his focus in the automated vehicle industry, Jeff has a multifaceted and diverse practice, which includes private and public mergers and acquisitions, corporate reorganizations, corporate governance matters, corporate and business entity law, nonprofit law, taxation, and complex estate planning.
