Introducing Jarrod Melson, Harvard’s New General Counsel

By Jarrod Melson Monday, January 13, 2020

jarrod-melson-hbs-general-counselIt is a pleasure to introduce myself to our blog readers in this inaugural post. I am Harvard Business Services’ new General Counsel.

I am from Lewes, Delaware originally, where Harvard’s headquarters is currently located, and have the good fortune to join a dynamic, thriving company, as well as experience a homecoming to family, friends, and the community that shaped who I am.

A graduate of American University – Washington College of Law and an attorney with 15 years of practice on corporate and securities law, I will post on topics inside my areas of expertise, namely:

  • Structuring hedge, venture capital and private equity funds
  • Advising issuers and investors on creating or allocating capital to complex alternative investments, and
  • Navigating the legal, regulatory and practical aspects of business structuring, regulatory compliance and capital raising, particularly in the context of early-stage companies.

I derive great satisfaction and passion for my work in knowing Harvard’s expert services are giving clients’ businesses the best start possible in formation and providing quality, reliable registered agent services, among other things. 

I love that Harvard has the maturity, strong systems, and outstanding service of an established business, with all the excitement and drive from the mailroom to the Chairman’s office found in a high growth, disruptive start-up. Growing rapidly as its low prices, efficient filings, knowledgeable staff, and outstanding customer service bring repeat business and new clients, this registered agent is doing excellent work.

Harvard is taking an industry-leading role in embracing innovation, developing new technologies and partnerships to deliver its clients the most advanced products and services available.

My goal is to not only make my corner of the blog informative, but to evidence its potential as a relied-upon and oft-visited resource. 

I hope you will check in on this blog frequently as our content grows, and be certain to keep any eye out for my regular posts in the future!
