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.

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