Partners Samuel Feigin and Mark Kass joined Nixon Peabody’s Washington office Nov. 10 in the firm’s corporate transactions practice. Both came from Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo where they headed its Israeli business practice.
With Nixon, Kass and Feigin will focus on representing high-tech and life science companies involved in transactional matters in the D.C. area and internationally. Kass told Legal Times that he and Feigin will continue to be heavily involved with representing Israeli high-tech and life science businesses at Nixon.
Kass says one of the primary reasons for the move to Nixon from Mintz was because of Nixon’s broader national and international reach. Mintz has seven domestic locations and one international office in London. Nixon has 19 offices, including three that are located abroad.
“We thought Nixon offered an even better platform for our practices," Kass says. "Nixon Peabody has a large network of national and international offices.”
Kass declined to name any clients that he or Feigin represent or whether any would follow them to Nixon. He did say, however, they are already working with clients at Nixon.
