Learn Fred’s areas of practice.

Fred’s experience as a business executive, Chief Financial Officer, General Counsel and entrepreneur enables him to provide his clients with practical business advice and seasoned legal counsel. He represents emerging growth and mature Fortune 500 companies. Fred’s practice focuses on corporate and technology transactions, including technology licensing and new media agreements, venture capital financings, mergers and acquisitions.  

ENTREPRENEUR: Fred co-founded Fortis General Counsel, LLP, a transactional law firm recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a Tier 1 California corporate law firm and by the Daily Journal as one of the Top 50 boutique law firms in California, including the only firm recognized for its licensing practice.  After almost a decade at Fortis, Fred joined most of his former partners at Fortis to form his current firm, Acceleron Law Group, LLP. 

GENERAL COUNSEL: Fred was previously Vice President and General Counsel of Paciolan, a ticketing software company acquired by Ticketmaster and eventually sold to Comcast-Spectacor, a Comcast company. At Paciolan, Fred managed the legal affairs of Paciolan, which included inbound and outbound licensing transactions, venture capital and debt financings, mergers & acquisitions, corporate governance, employment counseling and management of outside counsel. Fred negotiated commercial licensing agreements with professional sports teams in the NBA, NHL and MLB, as well as major national universities such as the University of Oregon, University of Alabama, University of Michigan, University of Notre Dame and Indiana University. 

CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER: Prior to Paciolan, Fred was the Chief Financial Officer and VP General Counsel of Bitfone Corporation, a wireless software provider acquired by Hewlett-Packard. Fred managed Bitfone’s financial, legal, administrative, human resources and information technology operations in California, Canada, the United Kingdom, China, Japan and Korea. Fred negotiated and closed Bitfone’s merger with Digital Transit, Inc., its cross-border acquisition of Mobile Diagnostix and over $50M in venture capital financings, as well as commercial transactions with Motorola, Qualcomm, LG, Sony Ericsson and SK Telecom.

Great business partner
Fred is a best-in-class corporate attorney. We contract Fred to help prepare and negotiate all of our commercial agreements. In addition to being extremely well versed in risk allocation and contract law, he takes the time to understand our business and the business of our clients and can provide not only legal advice but sound, objective business advice. He is efficient, minimizing back and forth negotiations, and has never been one to "over-lawyer" a negotiation. Fred has also been invaluable in the preparation of documents and schedules in acquisition transactions. I would highly recommend him for any corporate matter need.
