Dave Bell Named Finance Monthly Deal Maker of the Year

Mountain View, CA (December 2, 2013) – Fenwick & West is pleased to announce that corporate partner David Bell has been named Deal Maker of the Year by Finance Monthly. The Finance Monthly Deal Maker of the Year Awards recognize “the most impressive transactions” of 2013, and Bell is recognized for his work for client Glu Mobile on its $15.2 million follow-on public offering.

Bell co-led with partner Rob Freedman a team of Fenwick attorneys on the follow-on public offering for Glu Mobile, a leading global developer and publisher of free-to-play games for smartphone and tablet devices, in  September. The follow-on public offering was completed several weeks following a restatement of Glu Mobile’s financial statements covering the prior two fiscal years, with which Bell had assisted the company. He also co-led the Fenwick teams that represented Glu Mobile in its $84 million initial public offering in 2007, a PIPE transaction in 2010 and a prior follow-on offering in 2011.

Author of Fenwick’s annual Corporate Governance Survey, Bell represents start-up technology companies through venture capital financings, mergers and acquisitions, initial public offerings and intellectual property licensing matters. He also counsels public companies in corporate, securities, governance and compliance matters.
