Board Leadership

Sam Zabaneh

Board Secretary

Latham & Watkins

As an Austin native, Sam Zabaneh has had the honor of watching the city develop into a technology hub, where new businesses are being created every day. He advises these companies throughout their entire lifecycle, from idea to public company, as well as the institutions that finance them. His practice focuses on a broad range of corporate issues, including general corporate matters, various capital raising and liquidity event transactions, mergers and acquisitions, along public company representation and securities offerings.

“My clients value the personal touch, as I understand that we aren’t working on their business, we are working on their passion, their purpose, their legacy. My recent clients have included Aceable, BigCommerce, Lion Street, LiveOak Venture Partners, Newgistics, Next Coast Ventures, RVshare, RetailMeNot, Silverton Partners, SourceDay, Tritium Partners, and Xomi.”

When he is not working with high-growth companies and investors, he spends his free time with his wife, following their three children in their various sports and activities, as well as the occasional fly fishing, wake surfing, or ski trip.
