Ted Scofield, Author

After graduating from Vanderbilt University, Ted began his career as an entrepreneur, working on campaigns before starting a political consulting firm that offered such services as campaign management, media creation & purchasing, and general strategy. After three years of advising challengers, incumbents and organizations, he realized how much he wanted to learn about the law and finance, so Ted sold his firm’s assets and entered Vanderbilt’s JD/MBA program.

Four years later, Ted began his legal career in New York with Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, a prominent firm founded in 1863 with sixteen offices in seven countries on three continents. While working in Orrick’s federal securities group, he advised companies and underwriters on the private and public offering of both equity and debt.

Ted has been a guest speaker on venture capital and e-commerce at Vanderbilt University’s Owen Graduate School of Management and was a featured panelist at a New Venture Conference.  He appeared in BusinessWeek, has been interviewed on Radio Wall Street and has been quoted in many articles on both business and legal topics.

EAT WHAT YOU KILL is Ted’s first novel.  Edward R. Pressman, the acclaimed producer of Wall Street, American Psycho and many more feature films, has optioned the film rights.
