Odell has also worked as a partner with Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue and a senior associated at Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP.

“I considered a great number of factors and options before moving back to private practice, and Blank Rome presented what I consider to be an ideal platform for continuing to build out what is already a unique and thriving financial services practice,” Odell said. “The Firm’s continued expansion—both in New York and other key markets—along with the depth and breadth of its stellar Financial Services team allows me to draw upon my GC, transactional, regulatory, and banking experience.”
