Chris is currently completing a dissertation on the history of employee-owned businesses in the United States. He recently published an article in the American Bar Association’s Probate & Property introducing a new approach to employee ownership in the U.S. In October 2015, he published an article in Tax Notes, the nation’s top-cited peer-reviewed tax law journal, titled “Grantor Trusts: A Path to Employee Ownership.” The latter article was reprinted as the first chapter of the New York University Review of Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation (2016). In 2019, Temple Press is scheduled to publish a paper on employee ownership as a community economic development strategy as the final chapter of a volume titled Immigrant Crossroads. Chris is also finishing a law review article arguing for reform of state employee ownership laws that includes his proposal for a new model state law.
