Kluk Farber Law Welcomes New Head of M&A
New York – Kluk Farber Law, a dynamic boutique law firm, today proudly announces the addition of former Wachtell lawyer Eitan Hoenig to its partnership. Eitan will lead the firm’s fast-growing M&A practice, focusing on transactions in the technology, media, and consumer goods spaces.
Eitan has a wealth of experience advising entrepreneurs, investors, and companies (public and private) in a wide range of industries in mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, divestiture and spin-off transactions, venture financings, capital markets transactions, workouts, proxy contests, and complex commercial agreements. He regularly advises boards of directors on securities and investment company matters, corporate governance, executive succession, takeover defense, and general corporate law.
Eitan also brings to Kluk Farber the practical skills he developed as Director of Strategy & Legal at Idion, a life sciences company that developed a patented, ultra-thin, biocompatible, skin-applied identification technology for use by healthcare institutions.
“The growing scope and depth of Eitan’s practice, as well as our clients’ increasing need for experienced corporate counsel, will provide our clients with a range of services usually found only at large Wall Street-type law firms. As a result, Eitan is a perfect fit for our growing team,” said Agatha Kluk, one of the firm’s co-founders and the Chair of its Corporate Practice. “Eitan is a talented lawyer who has the extraordinary deal experience,” said Sonia Farber, the firm’s other co-founder and the head of its Dispute Resolution Practice. “We are very excited that Eitan is joining us as a partner.”
Eitan graduated from the University of Chicago Law School, clerked for a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit from 2010-2011, and then practiced as a corporate lawyer at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz from 2011 to 2018. Before that, he was the Director of Research at a software company that developed financial consulting tools for the technology industry.
Kluk Farber is a full-service law firm with offices in New York City and Los Angeles. The firm is comprised of nationally-recognized lawyers, advocates, and strategic advisors. Each of the firm’s lawyers received the highest levels of training from the top U.S. law firms, including Wachtell Lipton, Debevoise & Plimpton, and Paul Weiss.
