“Asia has become increasingly important to our clients, and Jonathan brings a unique understanding of Asian business practices and cultures, as well as fluency in Japanese and Mandarin Chinese languages that will benefit their business interests,” said Dan Cohn, chair of the firm’s Commercial Department.  “Jonathan not only strengthens our international capabilities, but he also provides great depth and expertise as we serve our clients’ needs across the country.”

“Farella Braun + Martel has a distinguished history, tradition and reputation in San Francisco’s legal community, and I am excited about being a part of that,” said Lemberg.  “I am particularly impressed with the collaborative way in which the firm approaches the practice of law and delighted to be joining its outstanding team of attorneys.”
