Law Firm of Fitzgerald & Rhodes LLP Welcomes Nationally Recognized Partner

WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwire) -- 01/22/13 -- Fitzgerald & Rhodes LLP, a Washington, D.C.-based law firm with expertise in business and transactional law, welcomed their newest addition, acclaimed Washington, D.C.-based lawyer, David Sylvester, in April 2012. David joins partners Stephanie Fiesta, Justine Fitzgerald, and David Rhodes, bringing nearly 25 years of experience in general corporate law and a variety of transactional matters to the firm.

David joined the firm to focus on representing entrepreneurs and innovative emerging companies in general corporate law, private equity financings, mergers and acquisitions, strategic partnerships, and general contractual matters. Prior to joining the firm, David worked for Venture Philanthropy Partners ("VPP"), a private, non-profit, philanthropic investment corporation in the District of Columbia, Hale and Dorr (now WilmerHale), and Fenwick & West. He has advised clients, such as Electronic Arts, CareerBuilder, Best Software, and OTG Software and has represented leading venture capitalists and underwriters in connection with private and public financings of leading technology companies. "David's ability to draw on years of experience representing high profile venture capital-backed technology companies and the national and regional venture capital funds and investment banking firms assisting such companies will be a great asset to the emerging companies we represent and will be a great fit as we continue to expand our transactional practice," said David Rhodes, a partner at the firm.

David's resume includes many accolades. He was recognized for outstanding work in mergers and acquisitions and general corporate law by Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business from 2003-2006. He was chosen by his peers for The Best Lawyers in America 2006 and 2007, recognizing his excellence in private equity and securities law and leveraged buyouts. Additionally, Regardie's Power magazine placed David on its "Power Internet 100" list in 2000.

His dedication and commitment to community service make David stand out even more. From his work at VPP, his post- Katrina volunteer efforts in his hometown of New Orleans, and his presidency of AHC, Inc., an Arlington, Virginia-based non-profit provider of housing for low and moderate- income families, David has worked to provide others with the support he received growing up in a New Orleans public housing project.
