March 27, 2017 – Press Releases

Adding depth to the firm’s national Emerging Companies and Venture Capital practice, Fox Rothschild LLP is pleased to welcome Michael H. Chung as a partner in the firm’s New York office. Chung will be joined by members of his former Dentons team, including several associates.

“Michael is renowned in the startup community, and we are thrilled to welcome him to Fox,” said Mark L. Silow, Fox’s Chair. “His entrepreneurial spirit and deep experience, from co-founding his own law firm, to successfully counseling emerging companies through the corporate life cycle, will benefit our clients nationwide.”

Chung serves as outside general counsel to entrepreneurs, startups, venture capital-backed and emerging growth companies, as well as investors and funds. He advises clients in a wide range of industries, including SaaS, fintech, digital media, security, e-commerce, fashion, hospitality, big data, social media, health, consumer products and private equity. He has successfully represented numerous New York and California based companies in debt, seed and later stage financings and exits.

In his role as outside GC, Chung advises on internal and external business transactions and strategy; corporate governance, intellectual property development, protection and commercialization; M&A; sales and distribution agreements; software and technology licensing; and compensation and exit strategies. He earned his J.D. from Brooklyn Law School in 2006 and his B.A. from Tufts University in 2001.

Prior to joining Fox, Chung was a partner in the New York office of Dentons. Previously, he co-founded RK Adler LLP, a New York boutique law firm for technology startups, venture-backed businesses and small-to-mid-cap emerging growth companies, which was acquired by Dentons in 2015.
