Fenwick & West LLP represented GitHub Inc., a social network for programmers, in its recently announced investment of $100 million in a Series A financing from Andreessen Horowitz. What makes this transaction particularly special, aside from the significant amount, is that it’s the single largest investment that Andreessen Horowitz has ever made and the only outside investment GitHub has ever taken up to date.
This round of funding will help the company develop tools that can be used on other platforms and operating systems for mobile devices, and improve its clients for Mac and Windows computers.
More information about GitHub’s Series A investment can be found on the company website.
The Fenwick transaction team was led by corporate partner Sam Angus; corporate of counsel Brian Hicks; and corporate associate Sarah Herman.
