Alisande “Sandy” Rozynko has over twenty-five years of experience practicing corporate and securities law. Sandy’s career has taken her throughout Silicon Valley: She was a corporate and securities partner at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, P.C. before starting her own firm. She then went in house before joining Putnam Gordon P.C. as Of Counsel.
Sandy has worked with countless businesses from startups to large publicly traded companies, but she prefers working with startups and mid-sized companies. Building trusted relationships with a company’s key executives and partnering with those executives to assist them in growing a successful business is what she finds most rewarding.
She structures, manages, and negotiates merger and acquisition transactions, private placement equity and debt transactions, strategic alliances, spin-outs, recapitalizations, and other corporate reorganizations.
Sandy has represented technology and growth companies at all stages of their development, from seed-stage start-ups to mature public companies. She has also advised public and private companies and their management on a broad range of corporate matters, including corporate governance responsibilities, equity incentive plans and arrangements, employment matters, intellectual property issues, regulatory compliance, and commercial transactions. Sandy often counsels entrepreneurs on the formation of their companies, equity structures, and assists them in negotiations with seed and venture capital investors.
Sandy has also represented a number of foreign companies in establishing offices or reincorporating into the United States.
Outside of law, Sandy enjoys reading mystery novels, creative cooking, and playing the guitar.
