  • France-U.S. Corporate
    "We were very pleased with Carolyn's representation of our company in the U.S. She both drafted an employment agreement for a U.S. team member and assisted with a PA filing. We especially appreciated Carolyn's ability to seamlessly transition French business concepts to their English equivalents, as well as her very prompt and responsive communications."

    I had worked with Carolyn on a complicated contractual matter involving intellectual property, antitrust and foreign legal implications, among other things. I found her to be extremely well versed in such contracts and her input was creative and valuable. I would certainly recommend her for complex transactions.

  • Commercial Litigation
    “Carolyn, I wanted to take a moment and sincerely thank you for your representation in a judgement that was filed against my company.  It was a matter that we both felt was unjust never less still needed to be defended.  From our first discussion I felt very comfortable speaking with you about the case and very appreciative you took the time to discuss the matter along with the possible outcomes and the defenses.  I find dealing with attorneys very nerve racking but I found you to be very upfront, extremely intelligent, and very sincere.  I thought you handled the case very well along with interactions with other attorneys while always trying your best to get the case dismissed or coming to a settlement.  From day one I  felt you had my best intentions and concerns about finances in mind when handling the case.   I am pleased with your thoroughness, kindness and overall experience; and all this from someone who was always scared to death to deal with a lawyer. Thank you again Carolyn for your help in getting this case dismissed."

  • Wharton: Legal Aspects of Entrepreneurship, 2011-Present
    • For any entrepreneur at Penn, this is a MUST TAKE class.
    • Professor Hochstadter, in my opinion, is everything a great teacher should be. She is highly knowledgeable about the subject matter and very effective at communicating the concepts. Equally important is the enthusiasm and energy that she brought to class every day. I think Penn would be a lot better if all professors were like Professor Hochstadter.
    • Prof. H is one of my favorite professors at Penn. You learn a lot of valuable things like stock, laws, and contracts for employment.
    • Professor Hochstadter was perhaps the most available professor I've ever had.
    • Prof. Hochstadter is incredible. I loved her class.
    • I found this course to have opened my eyes to the many different legal complexities behind starting and running a business. Coming into the course, I was looking to learn about legal aspects of venture capital, mergers and acquisitions, and private equity. I found all these topics to have been covered in a way that was relatively easy to understand. I also was particularly engaged with the information taught about employment law. The lectures about the various protections existing about discrimination and other basic employment law concepts really drove home the importance of being sensitive to one's conduct in the workplace.
    • Hochstadter is very organized, which is nice.
