Frost Brown Todd, a full-service law firm based in Cincinnati, has appointed Terrence J.L. Reeves to lead its new Ann Arbor office. Reeves, an attorney, joins the firm from Pepper Hamilton’s Detroit office. He will work with Frost’s startup, venture capital fund, and emerging company clients.
“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,” says Robert V. Sartin chairman of Frost. “We look forward to offering those resources to the rapidly growing businesses in and around Ann Arbor.”
Previously, Reeves served as an assistant U.S. attorney in Eastern District of Michigan, where he led the Financial Crimes Task Force. He has experience advising tech and tech-enabled companies across the U.S.
Along with his other responsibilities, Reeves serves as president of the Wolverines Bar Association, and he recently completed his term on the board of directors of the Michigan Strategic Fund.
In addition to Reeves, John Gaviglio, a senior associate at Frost and member of the firm’s automotive industry team, and Brittany L. Bradshaw, senior associate from Pepper Hamilton, will also join the office.
“It’s an exciting time in the region as the work of entrepreneurs, investors, universities, and partner organizations has again solidified the area’s position as a hub for innovation,” says Reeves. “We look forward to contributing to the next chapter of that story by leveraging FBT’s core competencies to provide differentiated services and resources to our clients. We’ll immediately build a local team of health care, intellectual property, and privacy and data security attorneys to complement our deep bench of talent in the firm’s existing markets.”
Frost’s legacy firm, Frost and Jacobs, opened in 1919. Since then, the firm has grown to 13 markets in nine states. It has more than 525 attorneys.
