San Francisco, CA – Dec. 9, 2011 – Rimon P.C., an international corporate law firm, announced today that Scott Raber  has joined its San Francisco office as a Partner in Rimon’s Litigation, Employment, and Healthcare practice groups.

Mr. Raber previously practiced with the global law firm Latham & Watkins in New York and San Francisco, and with Bay Area litigation boutiques the Banchero Law Firm and Newton, Kastner, and Remmel. Licensed in California and New York, he maintains an extensive background in commercial and employment matters including: investor, shareholder, and partnership rights; employee compensation and termination matters; employee-raiding; trade secret theft; unfair competition; fiduciary and professional liability; real estate; health care regulatory issues; and consumer class action defense.

Mr. Raber prosecutes and defends claims in federal and state trial courts, and before private arbitration panels. In addition to litigation and arbitration, Mr. Raber counsels clients on legal and business matters and provides outsourced general counsel services for a national mortgage lender.

Mr. Raber’s work and dedication have resulted in numerous favorable dispositions. For example, in the past three years, he has obtained seven-figure judgments and settlements (including punitive damages) in two matters involving diverse issues ranging from fraud to insurance bad faith claims. Among his more notable prior cases, Mr. Raber successfully represented the former CEO of a prominent internet retailer against a well-known media mogul in a dispute over the parties’ ownership interests in the company. Following a five-week arbitration, Mr. Raber’s client prevailed on his claims, defeated all counterclaims against him, and obtained attorneys’ fees.

“I am confident that the combination of Rimon’s existing practice areas, the caliber of its attorneys, its geographical reach, and its smart approach to the practice of law will serve my clients well,” said Mr. Raber.

“Scott’s 17 years of litigation experience is a wonderful addition to the Rimon team. We can now offer even more comprehensive support to our clients throughout the globe,” said Michael Moradzadeh, Rimon’s Managing Partner and Executive Director.
