L. Lin Wood announced on Twitter Thursday morning that his colleague John Pierce had assembled a legal team to defend Rittenhouse, and they were ready to fly out to Wisconsin to meet with the family as soon as tonight. He and his team are currently trying to make contact with the Rittenhouse family.

The #FightBack Foundation will take donations for Rittenhouse's legal defense. A website for the foundation will be online in the next day or so, he said.

Wood said that John Pierce will lead the defense team. The lawyers said the #FightBack Foundation is the only approved fund for Rittenhouse's legal fees

"Please be wary of any other efforts to raise money for Kyle’s defense," Wood said.

John Pierce has resigned from his position with the defense fund, according to the above. That may be different. The above includes, “Attorney John Pierce is defending Kyle Rittenhouse...”

Wood, who now controls the foundation, said Pierce would be reimbursed for his work defending Rittenhouse. Unquote.

[sidebar, lawquote:
...early March, when Law.com reported that managing partner John Pierce was on leave amid firm financing questions.

...with an investigation finding that he had borrowed money [4M] from an unconventional funding source for his own personal use. That lender, Karish Kapital, filed a lien against Pierce and the firm in late February.

Unquote. https://www.law.com/americanlawyer/2020/04/09/three-name-partners-leave-pierce-bainbridge/

John Pierce took a leave of absence in March amid allegations he’d taken out a personal loan using the firm’s assets as collateral. In a statement given to The American Lawyer at the time, a firm spokesperson said a “preliminary investigation” had corroborated that he took out a personal loan, but Pierce himself has not publicly commented on the matter. https://abovethelaw.com/2020/04/wannabe-biglaw-firm-closes-its-doors/
