Hanson Bridgett Welcomes Michael J. Gorback (March 1, 2011) 

Hanson Bridgett LLP is pleased to announce the addition of Michael J. Gorback as counsel in its Silicon Valley office. Mike was previously in the corporate practice of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati. This news follows the announcement that Ron Wynn and five other attorneys joined the firm last month. 

"Hanson Bridgett is committed to expanding our presence on the peninsula. We welcome Mike to our Silicon Valley office as a way to better serve our clients in the South Bay" stated Andrew Giacomini, managing partner of Hanson Bridgett. 

Mike has represented private and public companies at all stages of growth in mergers and acquisitions, financing, employment benefits and compensation, labor regulations, corporate governance, real estate, and intellectual property matters. He has also worked with clients on later-stage equity, debt financings, and initial public offerings. He has represented venture capital and private equity investors in private placements ranging from less than $1 million to in excess of $100 million. 

"We are extremely pleased to have Mike join the team," stated Steve Gasser, partner and head of Hanson Bridgett's Silicon Valley office. "We're seeing growth in our client base in the Valley across the spectrum of business industries. There is tremendous opportunity here to put Mike's valuable experience to good use." 

Mike received his J.D. magna cum laude, Order of the Coif, from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in 2003 and his B.A. with high honors from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2000.
