Carmen Conring DeMatteis is a member of the Tech Group. She focuses her practice on mergers and acquisitions of venture and private equity-backed companies, private equity and venture capital transactions and angel investments.

Carmen serves as outside general counsel to technology, life science and other growth companies. She is particularly adept at counseling such companies through all phases of their existence, from corporate formation and issues arising in their day-to-day operations to their ultimate exit through acquisition (and everything in between). Carmen works tirelessly to understand her clients’ needs and to achieve their business objectives.

Carmen's commitment to the legal profession includes working on pro-bono matters. Carmen served as a staff member of the Lowenstein Center for the Public Interest from 2010 until 2011, where she was responsible for continuing the Center’s initiatives aimed at strengthening the societal impact of the firm’s pro bono work and where she worked on various corporate pro-bono matters, including merger transactions.

Outside the office, Carmen can be found skiing, hiking and traveling.
