She holds a Juris Doctor from Fordham University School of Law and until now has been a senior associate at Mayer Brown LLP.
Starting today, she’s now the lead in-house counsel for Townsquare Media.
Taking the role of SVP/General Counsel is Allison Zolot.
At Mayer Brown, she served as an associate in Mayer Brown’s New York office and a member of the Litigation & Dispute Resolution practice. Her practice focused on representing financial institutions, pharmaceutical companies, and other multinational corporations in complex commercial and securities litigation in federal and state courts.
Specifically Zolot concentrated on the areas of banking and financial services, including actions involving alleged violations of the securities laws and allegations of fraud or misrepresentation in the sale of complex financial instruments, such as residential mortgage-backed securities (“RMBS”) and other derivative instruments.
Townsquare CEO Bill Wilson said the local audio and digital media company is “thrilled to have such a talented lawyer” join the company. He continued, “Allison is a strong and effective leader who will make a great addition to our senior management team. I look forward to working with Allison as we continue to drive long-term growth and shareholder value through the execution of our ‘Local First’ strategy.”
Zolot said she is “humbled by the opportunity to work with Bill and the company’s senior management team.”
Mayer Brown has been her lone professional position following her receipt of a Fordham J.D. in 2009.
