Flatiron Law Group Expands In Silicon Valley & RTP


NEW YORK, April 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Haddad Everhard & Shen LLP is pleased to announce a change in the name of the firm to "Flatiron Law Group LLP." The firm moved its New York City office to the Flatiron District.

Flatiron was founded by former Jones Day NY partners who also served as GCs. "We created the law firm we wanted when we were general counsels," said co-founder Conrad Everhard. "The Flatiron District is associated with the new economy and innovation. Our firm is a destination for entrepreneurial companies and those who invest in them. The name change suits our mission."

Co-founder Mark Haddad added, "We continue to push the boundaries of law firm innovation. Our strategy combines the traditional strengths of elite New York law firms with the industry savvy of the best Silicon Valley firms. We understand the state of the art in creating efficient work flows and are quick to deploy them. We aim to be the fastest learning and lowest cost "deployer" of best practices and technologies to manage our matters."

The firm opened new offices in San Francisco and The Research Triangle Park (RTP) in Raleigh in April 2017 as the practice expanded. Greg Chin joined Flatiron as a partner to head the Silicon Valley practice. Mr. Chin formerly was a partner at Jones Day and Latham & Watkins, where he was global co-chair of the cleantech industry group. http://flatiron.legal/greg-chin/

"Greg leads our charge into the Bay Area market," said Mr. Haddad. Mr. Everhard added, "Greg and I recently worked together on a $200 million cross-border venture capital financing for a solar company. He's a talented lawyer with a strong understanding of key business drivers in a deal." http://flatiron.legal/tim-mcneill/
