Jeremy J. Wolk, of the Rochester office of Nixon Peabody LLP, is one of 12 new elected partners announced this week.
Wolk came to Nixon Peabody after serving as general counsel for iVillage Inc. and NBC Universal Inc. He works with a wide range of clients from intellectual property-centric startups to Fortune 150 companies on business and corporate matters. He advises on mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital investments, commercial contracts and intellectual property transactions.
“Cash flows from intellectual property will diversify as owners seek new methods to monetize core and under-utilized assets, and private equity funds target IP portfolios as a new investment class,” Wolk said. “We’re assisting clients in traditional and novel ways for buying, selling and commercializing intellectual property assets.”
Wolk is also chair of the board of governors of the Jewish Community Centers of Greater Rochester and chair-elect of the Monroe Community College Foundation.
Other newly elected partners are in Nixon Peabody’s New York, Long Island, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington, D.C., offices.
“This is a talented group of lawyers who deliver to clients excellent legal counsel and exceptional client service,” said Andrew Glincher, CEO and managing partner. “They have impressed our clients and our firm, and their election to the partnership reflects years of dedication and hard work.”
