October 29, 2020

Former Chief Strategy Officer of Loop AI Labs Viqar Shariff has joined O’Melveny’s Emerging Technology practice in the New York office.

Shariff will advise entrepreneurs and technology companies from the start-up stage through going public and will lead the group’s expansion in the New York market, Bloomberg Law reported.

“In the New York legal marketplace, much of the focus is on public company M&A, so there’s a hole when it comes to representing emerging companies and startups,” Shariff said. “I want to be able to grow the business as much as possible.”

“Despite this pandemic, deals are continuing to go forward, and we don’t want to miss a beat.” Shariff added.
