Goodwin Boosts Santa Monica Tech Team with 3 Attys (Law360)

Goodwin has added three partners in Santa Monica, California, to its Technology practice, the firm announced Wednesday. Chris Shoff, David Ajalat and David Pendergast will represent emerging growth companies as well as venture capitalists and other financiers in those markets, the firm said. They will also help clients on company formation, structuring and other corporate work. Ajalat said all three were passionate about working in the field because of their entrepreneurial, innovative mindset. "It's the closest we can get [while] being a lawyer to actually building something and creating something and being a part of a journey," Ajalat said. "And so it's really exciting to work with the tech companies and rinse and repeat, and share with them in their journey. And obviously, it's a way to feel like we're all creating our own start-ups every time we partner up with our companies." Read the Law360 article here.
