Jason Femrite has become the newest addition to the SDSI Advisory Board, as confirmed by Bill Walton, Executive Chairman of SD Sport Innovators (SDSI). Jason is a partner in the Action Sports and Apparel Group of the San Diego-based law firm Procopio, Cory, Hargreaves & Savitch LLP, and will now act as the 23rd member of the board.
“We are honored to have Jason join the SDSI Advisory Board,” says Walton. “He has been very clear in his commitment to our mission, and his knowledge, relationships and understanding of sports and business will be invaluable in helping to further define and guide our organization. Jason's expertise expands beyond his legal profession as he brings unique services and a wealth of experience from his years in the Sports Industry. His knowledge of the sports business community is only overshadowed by his passion.”
Femrite's current practice is geared towards helping entrepreneurs and executives to commercialize their business concepts, from start to finish. Throughout his career, Femrite has represented companies across an array of transactions, including more than 150 financings and acquisitions, in addition to assisting with brand protection and expansion on a global basis. Though he has established himself in many fields, Femrite's focus has long been in the action sports industry, spending more than 12 years with Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps LLP, where he established and led the firm's Action Sports Group.
“I am truly excited to be joining the SDSI Advisory Board,” says Femrite. “I look forward to working with this great group of industry leaders and contributing my experience to help grow the next generation of sport innovators.”
