Lowenstein Sandler has named partner Anthony W. Raymundo as head of its Palo Alto, California office, effective as of January 1, 2023. Raymundo will continue the firm’s ongoing efforts to strategically grow Lowenstein’s presence in Silicon Valley.
“Anthony’s experience in tech and venture capital investment make him a natural choice to strengthen the impressive foundation Lowenstein Sandler has built over the last 14 years in the heart of the technology industry,” said firm Chair and Managing Partner Gary M. Wingens. “In his practice, Anthony is masterful in handling the technical issues and complex challenges that arise in the course of deals, always armed with practical, efficient solutions that fit within his clients’ business needs. We are pleased to have his leadership in the Palo Alto office.”
Raymundo counsels startups, early-stage companies, growth companies, and venture funds on corporate transactions. Clients benefit from his experience working closely with a host of other startups across their life cycles, from creation to operational matters and through exit. He also has negotiated numerous venture financings and is adept at navigating mergers and acquisitions.
Raymundo has led the firm’s efforts in representing both investors and founders across the constantly expanding technology sector, supervising transactions involving Edtech, HRTech, and PropTech, to name a few. He has also been instrumental in growing Lowenstein’s global practice, as illustrated by his work on such matters as the representation of Holberton, Inc., in its acquisition by African Leadership International.
“2023 is likely to bring impactful changes to businesses in Silicon Valley,” says Raymundo. “I am thrilled to be able to lead Lowenstein’s California-based teams as we support and counsel our clients on their innovative projects during this time of both challenge and opportunity.”
Raymundo succeeds Kathi A. Rawnsley, who has led the California office’s expansion since its opening in 2008.
Wingens added: "We are grateful to Kathi for all of her work in founding our Silicon Valley office and helping expand the depth and breadth of our Tech practice in northern California."
