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,
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.
