Lion Tech Law provides premium, experienced and efficient legal representation to both emerging and established technology companies.

Mr. Goldenberg specializes in corporate and business matters for companies ranging in size from startup companies to large publicly traded corporations in the United States and overseas. Representative areas of expertise include company formations, licensing and commercial transactions, debt and equity financings, stock option and executive compensation matters, mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, management buyouts, strategic partnerships, intellectual property and internet issues, leasing transactions, corporate governance, and the other areas affecting the formation, growth, and operation of business clients.

Prior to founding Lion Tech Law, Mr. Goldenberg served as general counsel for Mediabolic, Inc., the leading embedded entertainment software company in Silicon Valley, for nearly three years. He oversaw all legal aspects for the company, including sales and business development transactions (including negotiation of over 75 separate licensing transactions with companies such as Intel, Motorola, Sony, Cisco/Linksys, Fujitsu, Phillips, HP, Broadcom and Marvell), financing issues (including two rounds of venture capital financing), stock option matters, employee matters, and the eventual sale of the company to Macrovision, Inc.

Prior to Mediabolic, Mr. Goldenberg practiced law at the San Francisco headquarters of Morrison & Foerster, one of the country’s premier law firms, for nearly seven years. At MoFo, he completed a variety of transactions, including venture capital financings, IPOs, SEC compliance, mergers and acquisitions, licensing, executive compensation and other general corporate matters. He completed at least thirty venture capital financings of all types during his tenure (preferred stock, common stock, convertible debt, secured loan, up-round, down-round, bridge, warrants, and other types of financing), and multiple mergers at all size levels, from $6M to $1.9B, as well as licensing, strategic partner, and IPO transactions. He also advised publicly traded companies in mergers and acquisitions, financing, corporate governance, stock option, executive compensation, and stock exchange listing (and delisting) matters.

Mr. Goldenberg graduated from Stanford Law School in 1996, where he was Chair (Managing Editor) of the Stanford Journal of Law, Business & Finance. Prior to that, he received his bachelor’s degree from Stanford University with honors (where he was admitted to Phi Beta Kappa). Mr. Goldenberg is a member of the Bar in California.
