The Blackstone LaunchPad powered by Techstars welcomes Anna Jumbo, J.D. Candidate ’20, Syracuse University College of Law, as a mentor. She will be available for office hours in the LaunchPad at Bird Library each Tuesday, from noon to 1:30 p.m., starting Tuesday, February 25. As a mentor, she can help students understand how to incorporate a business or establish a non-profit organization, and the differences between various types of entities. She can also help startups understand basics associated with contracts, agreements and other aspects associated with setting up and managing a startup business. Appointments are available on a drop-in basis, or by e-mailing LaunchPad@syr.edu to reserve a time slot.
Anna is a third-year law student at Syracuse University College of Law. Born to Nigerian parents in Dallas, Texas, she always knew that she wanted to be a lawyer, and ever since coming to Syracuse, has made it her mission to immerse herself in as many experiences as were feasible. As a current Student Attorney with the Transactional Law Clinic, she has handled client cases from initial correspondence to guiding them through choice of entity, incorporation, registering with the Attorney General’s Charities Bureau, and, where it is needed, counseling them on possible outcomes of their activities where it may run contrary to relevant law.
For the first seven months of 2019, Anna threw caution to the wind and took on the Big City. She worked as a Legal Intern at Christie’s International Real Estate in Manhattan, working directly with the Senior Counsel and Vice President in preparing for and attending depositions for a pending sexual harassment case, reviewing contracts and client’s files, and conducting independent research on General Data Protection Regulation. Anna was introduced to the inner workings of the international real estate world and saw first-hand how lawyers navigate the intricacies of real estate and brokerage laws. It was here that she began to hone her research and writing skills by drafting legal memoranda on pointed issues of law like auction house regulations and auctioneer licensing requirements in European countries.
We are pleased to add Anna to our team of in-house experts and mentors, and welcome her.
