Lowenstein Sandler PC has announced the opening of a Silicon Valley office to be led by Kathi Rawnsley, who leaves Intel Capital to head Lowenstein's West Coast office.
Ms. Rawnsley was most recently regional counsel for the U.S. and Canada, and throughout 2007 acting general counsel for Santa Clara-based Intel Capital, where she worked for nine years. Intel Capital has been the world's most active venture investor. During Ms. Rawnsley's tenure as acting general counsel of ICap, the company invested some $639 million in 166 deals. Within the last year, Ms. Rawnsley's deals included leading Intel's corporate legal team on a multibillion-dollar joint venture with Micron Technologies in Singapore and working on Intel's proposed strategic investment in a new company to be formed through the combination of Clearwire and the 4G assets of Sprint Nextel that were announced in May 2008.
Ms. Rawnsley is joined in the new Lowenstein office by Brad Arington, formerly of Intel Capital.
