Croke Fairchild Duarte & Beres Welcomes Paige Bolinger as an Associate

October 18, 2021

Croke Fairchild Duarte & Beres announced today that Paige Bolinger has joined its transactional practice as an associate. Paige advises emerging companies, founders, investors, and funds through a variety of venture capital-related and general corporate governance matters.

A former in-house attorney for a venture capital firm, Paige brings a unique lens to her practice, having executed a variety of transactions, including investments in emerging companies and funds, as well as provided strategic and legal support across various business units within the company. Paige began her career as a corporate transactional attorney at Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP, where she advised venture capital, private equity and other corporate clients through mergers and acquisitions (M&A), financings, and corporate governance matters.

“Paige has a diverse blend of experience from her time as in-house and outside counsel, and our clients will appreciate both her perspective and pragmatism,” said Drew Beres, managing partner of Croke Fairchild Duarte & Beres. “With so much activity across the VC market right now, we’re thrilled to have Paige on board to support our team and guide our clients through winning opportunities.”

Outside of the office, Paige serves on the boards of Blk Arthouse, a social enterprise organization dedicated to promoting and selling art by emerging black artists, and the L-CMD Research Foundation, a foundation dedicated to translating available technology into treatment for LMNA-related congenital muscular dystrophy.

“I couldn’t be happier to join Croke Fairchild and to work with the firm’s partners and associates to guide our VC clients during this very exciting time in the market,” shared Paige. “I knew I wanted to continue growing my VC practice while also supporting investors and startups across the emerging digital assets and crypto industries. Croke Fairchild has given me the opportunity to build a practice that accomplishes both, and that’s very rewarding at this point in my career.”

A Baltimore, MD native and resident, Paige earned her B.A. in public policy and Hispanic Studies from Trinity College (CT) and her J.D. from the Washington University School of Law in St. Louis where she was a recipient of the Dean’s Leadership Award.
