David is a thought-leader in partnership taxation and teaches the subject at the Boston University School of Law, where he has the title of Adjunct Professor. Coming from a science and mathematics background, he also has deep expertise in financial instruments and leveraged finance transactions. He has published in the Proceedings of the New York University Institute on Federal Taxation, the Federal Tax Institute of New England, and the Boston Bar Journal.

David has mathematics degrees from the University of Michigan (B.S. 1967 with highest honors) and Stanford University (M.S. 1968), a J.D. from Harvard Law School (1971 cum laude), and an LL.M. in Taxation from Boston University (1976).
