Corporate and securities law specialist Mark Diamond has joined the San Francisco office of the international law firm Rimon as a partner in the private investments fund group.

Diamond had previously headed Diamond Consulting, providing legal and compliance services to financial services companies. He spent the first 10 years of his career at Coudert Brothers, specializing in corporate finance and M&A transactions before becoming in-house counsel and compliance officer for several Wall Street firms including Lehman Brothers, Deutsche Bank, Wassersten Perella and Robertson Stephens.

After Robertson Stephens, Mr. Diamond became general counsel for hedge fund management company Cannell Capital, where he structured and helped launch several international hedge funds and managed complex employment issues. After leaving Cannell, he was engaged to develop compliance policies and procedures for the investment adviser client base of Howard Rice Nemerovski Canady Falk & Rabkin (now Arnold & Porter).

At Rimon, Diamond will represent financial services companies with an eye toward regulatory and transactional matters.

“Mr. Diamond is an excellent addition to our private investment funds group,” said Michael Moradzadeh, Rimon’s managing partner, in a statement. “His decades of skill and expertise will serve our hedge fund and private equity clients well, allowing us to provide more comprehensive private investment representation.”

In addition to San Francisco, Rimon has offices in New York; Palo Alto; Washington, D.C.; Incline Village, Nev.; Tysons Corner, Virginia; and Israel.
