Introduced by existing members.
I hope to get sense of the community and I hope to play at least a minor role (including as a volunteer) to help build and sustain it.
I am a Partner at Fitzgerald & Rhodes, a small law firm of lawyers with big firm experience that provides clients with sophisticated advice and counseling in real estate, commercial, and corporate law matters. I focus on advising a wide variety of innovative emerging companies on governance and general corporate law and initial-through late-stage private equity financings. Prior to joining Fitzgerald & Rhodes in 2012, I was a partner at Venture Philanthropy Partners for four+ years and before that I was a Senior Partner at WilmerHale, where I was instrumental in connecting early stage companies with venture capital financing and assisting later stage companies access public capital. I am a native of New Orleans and I have spent a time post-Katrina New Orleans volunteering on rebuilding efforts, including being a board member and advisor to groups working on education reform and the creation of an ecosystem for entrepreneurs in that city.
Experienced advisor to emerging companies and entrepreneurs.
