David Jargiello is the General Counsel and a Venture Partner of Flywheel Ventures. He joined Flywheel after over 20 years of legal practice, beginning in 1989 in Craig Johnson’s emerging companies group at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati. In 1993, he was one of the original 14 lawyers who founded Venture Law Group, a leading Silicon Valley law firm that grew to over 120 lawyers in four offices in major technology markets. As a VLG shareholder (partner), he was also that firm’s General Counsel and part of the management team responsible for the oversight and management of its business and professional matters.
After VLG merged with Heller Ehrman White & McAuliffe in 2003, Mr. Jargiello became a shareholder in the combined firm’s Corporate/VLG Practice Group. He was a member of Heller Ehrman’s management committee until re-joining Johnson in 2008 to create Virtual Law Partners – the first wholly “virtual” law office of national reach. Still among the most experienced law firm management experts in the country, he writes, speaks and consults frequently on the spectrum of professional and business matters that confront lawyers and law firms. He holds a BA from Case Western Reserve University, an MS from Stanford University and a JD from the University of California, Berkeley.
