Blake is an attorney focused on guiding private consumer brand companies and entrepreneurs from the infancy of an idea through successful exit. He also regularly serves as counsel to individual and institutional investors in the consumer brands, hospitality and technology industries. Thus, you’ll find him advising on a broad range of matters, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, venture capital investments, key supply chain relationships, endorsement and promotional partnerships with athletes, celebrities and other influencers, and general corporate governance and operations.
A native New Yorker, Blake earned his undergraduate degree in Psychology from Cornell University (with a brief hiatus at the University College London in London, England) before heading out west to study law at the University of Southern California Gould School of Law in Los Angeles, California. Perfect weather couldn’t beat out a New York slice of pizza so Blake made his way back to where it all started and joined up with The Giannuzzi Group in 2012.
When not in the office, Blake is busy crossing restaurants and beaches off his list with his friends and family, as well as making the occasional appearance on turntables throughout the city (thanks to his father the disco encyclopedia) and on the silver screen (thanks to his sister the filmmaker). He proudly supports Cycle for Survival, Directions For Our Youth, Charity: Water and Many Hopes.
