“The technology sector remains robust, and we’re seeing strong demand for our services,” Fenwick corporate practice chair Alan Smith said. “The firm is expanding the reach of our startup and venture capital ecosystem, and Einat is a key addition who adds depth to and will thrive on our platform.”

“We’re very excited to welcome Einat, whose deep roots in the Israeli technology community will bolster our practice,” said Fenwick startup and venture capital practice co-chair Cindy Hess. “Einat’s experience working with startup and venture capital clients will benefit our clients broadly, and her strength providing strategic counsel for business ventures involving Israel is exceptional.”
