Palo Alto, CA (September 5, 2017) -VLP Law Group LLP is pleased to announce that David Jargiello has rejoined the firm as a partner in the Corporate Practice Group and the firm’s General Counsel. Mr. Jargiello is a business transactional lawyer with more than 25 years’ experience in San Francisco and Silicon Valley primarily representing venture capital funds, professional service firms and legal technology companies in complex corporate finance, corporate securities, fiduciary duty and risk management matters. Mr. Jargiello is among the most experienced law firm general counsel in the country, and as such writes, speaks and consults frequently on the spectrum of professional and business matters that confront lawyers and law firms.

He is a current member of the State Bar of California’s Committee on Professional Liability Insurance and a former member of its Committee on Professional Responsibility and Conduct.

Mr. Jargiello was instrumental in working with VLP’s founders in the structure and formation of the firm in 2008. Since then he has continued to counsel VLP on professional responsibility, risk management and partnership matters from his own extensive solo platform. As a partner at VLP, Mr. Jargiello will continue in that role, as well as engage in a business transactional practice and a practice focused on the law governing lawyers.

“David is a valued counselor and colleague and I am very pleased that he will continue in that role as a partner and our General Counsel. We are also excited to add a Professional Responsibility and Risk Management Practice Group at VLP, which David will lead” said Cathryn Chinn, CEO of VLP Law Group LLP.

In addition to practicing law, Mr. Jargiello serves as an Adjunct Professor and Assistant Director of Business Law and Entrepreneurship at Golden Gate University where he teaches Securities Regulation, Venture Capital Financing, Transactional Drafting, and Professional Responsibility. He is also a Venture Partner at Flywheel Ventures, a seed and early-stage venture capital firm headquartered in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

“VLP was among the very first national, virtual platforms for the practice of law, and in my opinion it has developed some of the most sophisticated practice management, risk management and technological tools in the legal industry today. It is my honor to rejoin my colleagues and partners at VLP” noted Mr. Jargiello.
