Social Media Team Grows with Corporate Partner in San Francisco Bay Area

In June, Pillsbury welcomed Riaz Karamali to the Corporate & Securities – Technology practice in the firm’s Silicon Valley and San Francisco offices. He has vast experience with start-ups and in the the videogame space is a strong fit with Pillsbury’s capabilities in the San Francisco Bay Area. Mr. Karamali has acted as outside general counsel to many privately-held companies across a range of industries including the video game, cloud computing, mobile, biotechnology, semiconductor and medical device sectors. He frequently represents clients in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East on cross-border transactions.

Riaz is a great addition to the firm’s Social Media & Games team.

The team’s unique capability to provide comprehensive, proactive advice on these cutting-edge issues results, in part, from our attorneys’ commitment to be involved and stay abreast of rapidly evolving business, legal and technical trends. Through this investment, our team obtains valuable knowledge and insights that enable us to provide significant strategic advice and resources to clients, well beyond just “doing legal work.”
