Partner, Shareholder

I am committed to using my skills to advance racial equity and bring about social and economic change through socially and environmentally responsible entrepreneurship and democratic co-ownership & governance. Values-driven, unconventional structures, and transactions are my sweet spot.

Licensed since 2009, Jacqueline has practiced law in Brazil, France, and in the United States, developing expertise in a broad range of for-profit (small up to Global Fortune 500) and non-profit transactional legal needs.   

 From representing under-represented and under-served groups, to partnering with funders and investors, Jacqueline collaborates with business developers and coop incubators, and instigates conversations about community land trusts, cooperatives, DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organization), and other shared equity ownership models, to support community development strategies that seek lasting, transformational benefits to the local communities.  

 Passionate about education, she founded in 2018 the Biennial Cooperative Law Conference, in Ohio, where, with the support of the Center for Cooperative Development of the CFAES OSU, she gathers sector experts and practitioners to learn from each other’s experiences. 

 Since joining the firm, Jacqueline has spearheaded the firm’s Web3 practice group, notably supporting DAOs to design their entity structure and governance and adopting the cooperative legal model. She represents the first ever DAO cooperative in collaboration with Yev Muchnik, and presents many more, along with a number of startup disruptors.   

 Outside of the office, Jacqueline is a pickleball aficionado, is engaged in a variety of community projects, and plans most of her vacations around hikes with friends and family.
