We are proud to be counsel-in-residence for Potential Energy DC, the first technology incubator in the DC-metro area focused entirely on energy solutions, and considered the best place to start an energy company in the region.

Jennifer has also been recognized as a Slicing Pie Friendly Attorney by Mike Moyer, author of Slicing Pie: Fund Your Company Without Funds. Slicing Pie is a universal model for splitting equity fairly in an early stage company.
