General Counsel

Evan Ferl is a double Gator, was born, raised, and spent 28 years of his life in Gainesville. During his time at UF, he loved being involved on and off of campus, whether it was playing in the Florida Drumline on gameday, late night UF Senate meetings, drawing cartoons for the Independent Florida Alligator, or long summer days as a lifeguard at the city pools, he was privileged to call Gainesville home for many years. UF set him up for what has been an incredible personal and professional journey.

After working for NASA during his time at UF Law, he began his career at a software company in Mountain View, California. It was there he fell in love with the technology industry, and has been working with exciting and innovative companies ever since. During his time practicing, he's ran his own firm, worked in-house for large public companies, lead private companies through venture financing and successful exits, and currently serves as General Counsel to Poshmark, a social commerce marketplace for new and used merchandise.

Outside of his legal career he also spent a number of years as a professional standup comedian, performing at colleges, comedy clubs, and various dive bars nationwide, and just finished writing and illustrating a children’s book that he's hoping to one day publish and use to raise money for charity.
