San Francisco, CA, December 02, 2010 -- Rimon Law Group continues its
dynamic growth trajectory with a new milestone. On the heels of
establishing a New York presence with the hiring of ex-Sutherland senior
attorney Robin J. Powers, the two-year-old firm that has established a
strong practice combining the deep knowledgebase of traditional law firms
with the flexibility and efficiencies of cloud-based virtual law firms
has added another star to its roster.

Andrea Cohen joins Rimon from Morrison & Foerster LLP. Previously, she
has practiced with Cooley, Godward, Kronish LLP and Nixon, Peabody LLC,
and has served as counsel for dozens of private equity investment firms,
institutional investors and start-up companies. At Rimon, she will
continue her significant focus on clean energies and related
sustainability technologies, as well as her deep relationships in the
venture capital financing landscape with both companies and their
investors.

"Andrea is exactly the innovative-minded attorney who thrives at Rimon,"
said Michael Moradzadeh, co-founder and managing attorney, Rimon Law
Group. "She is proactive, self-directed, comfortable with technology and
open to the 'best-of-both-worlds' approach of our practice. We are
confident that the success of someone like Andrea will serve as a beacon
for other attorneys who are eager to do things a different way."

" Rimon has devised a solution that benefits everyone involved," said
Andrea Cohen. "Rather than dispensing with the traditional way of doing
business, they have incorporated the best aspects of it into a flexible
framework that leverages the latest collaboration tools and technology.
The result is that attorneys work better and smarter, with a truly 'high
touch' client focus."

Ms. Cohen has been a member of San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom’s Clean
Tech Advisory Council, director of the BayBio Institute, member of the
advisory board of Astia, member of the Northern California Asia Society’s
Program Committee. She is active in business and trade groups including
the U.S. Department of Commerce’s clean energy efforts and a founding
member and co-chair of the Investments sub-committee of the Institutional
Investors Committee of the American Bar Association's Business Law
Section.

Ms. Cohen received her Baccalaureate degree in Philosophy and Art History
from Boston University, her juris doctor from Northeastern University
School of Law, and an MBA degree from Northeastern University Graduate
School of Business.
