Today we’d like to introduce you to Dar’shun Kendrick.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
After law school, I was employed by a small boutique litigation firm—the firm of the late Dr. King, as a litigator. Long story short, the law firm imploded and I found myself looking for another job in September of 2010. The timing was horrible.
I never wanted to own my own law firm but started to get clients so incorporated. Then decided I loved it and wanted to do more. Then I specifically taught myself and read more about securities law and fell in love with this area of law.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It has NOT been a smooth road. Some of the struggles are typical of a start up–finding funding, friends and supporters, clients and what makes me different. Add to that being a young black woman and it’s that much harder.
As you know, we’re big fans of Kendrick Advisory & Advocacy Group, LLC. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
We are the premier corporate law firm specializing in capital raising & investment legal advice and services. We work specifically with black and women founders to meet their particular challenges and needs. Mission Statement: To provide EVERYONE access to capital markets through education and support.
Target Audience: Any company/founder looking to stay in compliance with all agencies and governments or protect themselves in deals or against lawsuits OR any individual or organization looking for investment guidance and strategy (I don’t hold custody of funds).
I am most proud of the exposure to capital markets I have been able to provide to entrepreneurs, particularly black and brown entrepreneurs and women founders, over the years.
What does success mean to you?
Success is liking what you do so much that you would do it for free.
