Yan Zhang in Law360: Haynes And Boone Adds First Silicon Valley Corporate Partner


Haynes and Boone, LLP has added the first corporate partner to its Silicon Valley, Calif., office, introducing Yan Zhang to the firm's intellectual property and technology transaction-focused team in San Jose in an effort to boost its securities and mergers and acquisitions services, the firm said Tuesday.

Zhang, who joined the firm in late October, represents both public and private technology companies at all stages in various corporate and securities capacities, also advising the financial institutions that invest in or provide services to those companies. His practice emphasizes cross-border mergers and acquisitions, with a particular expertise in China-focused deals.

“As the first corporate hire of the Silicon Valley office, Yan’s extensive background in domestic and cross-border transactions makes him an asset to the firm,” Greg Samuel, chair of the firm’s Dallas-based corporate section, said in a statement. "His hands-on experience practicing in California and China enhances our cross-border capabilities and our growing corporate practice.”
