Corporate

Rimon's Corporate Team possesses expertise spanning the spectrum of a company’s life cycle. We advise companies ranging from early stage enterprises to large public corporations, as well as financial institutions, on almost every type of corporate matter. Rimon's corporate attorneys bring both decades of legal experience and business experience to each representation. Our team includes former venture capitalists, investment bankers, entrepreneurs, engineers, and accountants; our collective background allows us to provide each client with practical legal counsel. Furthermore, our corporate attorneys work closely with the Tax, Intellectual Property, Private Client, and Litigation Teams to assure full-spectrum representation and a deep level of coverage for our clients.

In recognition of both their depth and reach, Rimon's corporate attorneys have been honored with various prestigious awards including Best Lawyers, Super Lawyers, and ABA "Legal Rebels", and their achievements have been noted in national publications and global media outlets, including the American Bar Association Journal, The Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, The Guardian, San Francisco Chronicle, The Los Angeles Times, Best Lawyers, Super Lawyers, Bloomberg, The Economist, the Jerusalem Post and US News and World Report. Many of Rimon's corporate attorneys have also lectured on corporate law matters at top universities and law schools, including Harvard, Stanford, Duke and Berkeley.
