About
I am a corporate generalist with over 27 years of experience, including 9+ years as a senior legal executive at Omnicom Group, a Fortune 500 global advertising and marketing company. In 2016, I started a practice advising start-up and emerging companies and helping them grow by identifying and properly navigating legal issues. I am now continuing this concept as DiRusso Corporate Counsel LLC. I enjoy becoming Outside General Counsel to my clients and working to enable their success.
