CEO, Spindle Law
David Gold is a founder and the chief executive of Spindle Research, Inc., which builds collaborative research services for professionals, both in-house and on the open web. Its community-built legal research site, Spindle Law (spindlelaw.com), organizes the law in a new way, guiding lawyers quickly to the legal information they need. Content is created and curated by legal experts and by a community of lawyer-contributors. A reviewer described Spindle Law as “unlike any research method you learned in school ... it is a backwards (read: totally intuitive) way of drilling into legal rules and finding the authorities to support them ... The site is very straightforward and easy to use, and has killer functionality." (Lawyerist, http://bit.ly/coaEX7). Spindle Law also opens a new forum for discussion, debate, and collaboration among lawyers and legal academics with shared interests.
Before launching Spindle, David was a litigator in private practice in New York City. He served as a law clerk on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and has taught college and graduate students.
David holds a J.D. from Columbia Law School, where he served as an Articles Editor on the Columbia Law Review, a Ph.D. in Asian and Middle Eastern Studies from the University of Pennsylvania, and an A.B. from Brown University. He blogs at blog.spindlelaw.com and now and then tweets at @davidpgold.
