The Frix Advisory Group, LLC focuses on investments in, and business and regulatory advice to, the technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) and Internet of Things (IoT) sectors and to investors in them.  

Until stepping down in April 2016 to form the Advisory Group, Dana Frix was Managing Partner of the Washington, D.C. office of the international law firm of Chadbourne & Parke, LLP (now merged with Norton Rose).  From 2002 until 2016 Dana was a partner in Chadbourne's corporate practice and Chair of its TMT practice. In that capacity Dana maintained a business advisory practice that provided corporate, finance, IP, and litigation advice to clients primarily in the TMT and IoT sectors, or to financial service firms investing in these sectors. Underlying and distinguishing this practice was a deep appreciation for business operations, as well as federal and state regulatory expertise (FCC, FTC DOJ, CFIUS among others) not often associated with premier corporate law practices. Prior to Chadbourne Dana was an Equity Partner with the international law firm of O'Melveny and Meyers LLP, where he co-headed that firm's Telecommunications practice.

Dana is also a Managing Partner of Utilicom Advisors, a boutique advisory and investment firm focused on providing strategic, financial, operational and transactional advice to telecommunications, utilities and technology companies and to advising technology investors, particularly in the critical infrastructure sectors.

Dana is on several boards, including: the Whitaker Peace and Development Initiative, founded by actor, artist and activist, Forest Whitaker; Savi Technology, an international sensor and "big data" predictive analytics business that is a leading provider of purpose-built sensors and Internet of Things "big data" predictive analytics software to the US Military and commercial customers around the globe; and RideTV, the leading U.S. cable channel dedicated to the horse culture and lifestyle.  He is also a founding advisor to the World Champions Rodeo Alliance, a professional sport and entertainment entity devoted to developing and advancing "America's first sport" - rodeo.

Information is no longer rare, but perspective and actionable intelligence in forming and developing  businesses are.  The Advisory Group was formed to provide independent advice in the acquisition, sale or running of companies and to make related capital investments.
