NEW YORK, Feb. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sichenzia Ross Ference, a leading securities and corporate law firm, announced today that Jeff D’Angelo will join the firm as a Partner in the firm’s Corporate and Securities practice, effective on February 19, 2019.

Prior to joining SRF, Mr. D’Angelo worked with publicly-traded company Document Security Systems, Inc. in a variety of roles, including Vice-President and General Counsel. Prior to joining DSS, Mr. D’Angelo practiced corporate law for several years, and also served as Managing Director at Prudential Financial, heading its Western New York financial operation and overseeing more than 60 sales associates and managers.

Mr. D’Angelo will represent SRF’s clients in securities law, corporate governance, commercial contracts, general corporate law, mergers & acquisitions, IPOs, technology licensing and corporate finance matters. In 2018, during his tenure as in-house general counsel for DSS, Mr. D’Angelo was nominated for the Western New York Daily Record and Rochester Business Journal’s Corporate Counsel of the Year Award.

“Sichenzia Ross offers me the perfect transition from my role as in-house general counsel while providing an ideal platform for me to continue representing DSS as outside counsel under the SRF umbrella. I have known Greg Sichenzia for years, as we attended law school together and have collaborated professionally in the past, and I am excited to join a nationally-recognized corporate and securities law firm with such a diverse roster of innovative public company clients,” said Mr. D’Angelo. “I am confident that my experience coupled with Sichenzia Ross’ reputation for excellence will help me to continue to grow the firm’s national corporate practice.”

Founding partner Gregory Sichenzia welcomed the addition, saying, “We are very glad to have Jeff on board. We worked with him when he was DSS’ general counsel and know that he has the professionalism and character that we seek to attract.”

Mr. D’Angelo holds a B.S. in General Management from Purdue University, and a law degree from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.
