ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Frost Brown Todd has opened an Ann Arbor, Mich. office and hired a new Member-in-Charge.
Veteran venture capital attorney Terrence J.L. Reeves will lead the team and work with FBT’s startup, emerging company, and venture capital fund clients. Most recently, he was an attorney in the corporate and securities practice group at Pepper Hamilton in Detroit. He is joined by current Senior Associate John Gaviglio who has been serving a three-year secondment in the region with one of the world’s top automotive manufacturers.
Associate Brittany L. Bradshaw will also join the office. Like Reeves, Bradshaw comes from Pepper Hamilton where she worked in the corporate and securities, emerging growth and automotive practice groups.
“Every move we make is methodically focused on the needs of the client first. With deep roots in the automotive industry, this expansion into the northern edge of ‘Auto Alley’ allows us to better serve our existing clients,” said Chairman Robert V. Sartin. “Bringing together an experienced veteran venture capital attorney like Terrence with our mobility and transportation, manufacturing, technology and health care industry teams will provide a comprehensive understanding of the most prevalent trades in the region to future clients. We look forward to offering those resources to the rapidly growing businesses in and around Ann Arbor.”
FBT’s expansion comes at the same time the firm celebrates the 100th anniversary of its legacy firm Frost & Jacobs which opened in 1919 in Cincinnati. Since then, the AmLaw 200 firm has grown to 13 markets in nine states. The firm’s mid-American foundation gives it the unique ability to understand and provide for the most critical issues facing business in the region.
