At Rimon, which has an intellectual property consulting office in Shenzhen, Ms. Deng joins a high-end China practice with experienced Partners Fred Chang, Zheng Liu, Peng Chen, Robert Lee, Letao Qin, Phillip Wang, David Xue, Ari Levine, and James Chapman. The China practice spends significant time servicing clients in the Greater China Region and other Asia jurisdictions, helping them brainstorm, negotiate, and conclude business transactions and dispute resolution involving their U.S. business or counterparties. Our partners also often act as either lead or local counsel of international clients in association with reputable international law firms in the U.S. and other jurisdictions.
“Judy has advised on some of the most cutting-edge transactions involving Asian parties, and has been at the forefront of representing companies in some of the sectors with evolving and innovative business models, such as digital media and medical technology. We are very happy to welcome her to Rimon. Her clients fit in perfectly with Rimon’s decentralized business model, where she can customize her practice to fit their specific needs and continue to provide long-term services at the efficiency and quality levels that clients need,” said Michael Moradzadeh, Rimon’s CEO.

“Rimon’s strong Silicon Valley office, as well as its international platform, will enable me to continue delivering legal advice to clients of various growth stages in an efficient way,” said Ms. Deng.
