We would like to introduce our new associate Heidi Fang.
Heidi is no ordinary lawyer. She reached out to to our law firm with a cold email and advocated her case like a like a true attorney but also an entrepreneur. Like many of our clients Heidi is an immigrant that is a “doer and dreamer” not afraid of challenges, including starting fresh in America. Her audacity and courage turned into a warm offer letter from us.
Heidi holds an LLM Degree in Law, Technology, and Entrepreneurship (2018) from Cornell Law School and an LLM Degree (2019) from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. She received her LLB Degree in International Economic Law (2017) from the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing, China. Prior to joining Cytowski & Partners, Heidi was a Law Clerk at a boutique law firm in New York City where she advised international corporations and entrepreneurs on U.S. expansion, global immigration & mobility, and employment matters. She also completed a legal internship at a leading Chinese technology VC firm, where she assisted with USD fund formation, series seed/series A investments, and educated portfolio companies on IP protection and regulatory compliance. Heidi’s admission to the New York State Bar is pending.
We are excited to have Heidi join us. Heidi’s hire is important as it reinforces our firm’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion in the startup world.
