For Cisco's Latest Deal, Fenwick Swaps Seats

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, July 1, 2015

SAN FRANCISCO — Fenwick & West has a long history of advising Cisco Systems Inc. on major purchases. But the firm sat on the opposite side of the table for Cisco's $635 million deal to acquire OpenDNS Inc., an online-security company. San Jose-based Cisco turned to a team from Cooley led by Palo Alto-based partner Craig Menden for the deal announced Tuesday. Menden did not immediately return a call requesting comment.

Fenwick & West's deal team for OpenDNS included Mountain View-based partners R. Gregory Roussel, Shawn Lampron and Andrew Kim and associates Stephen Fisher, Kevin Adams, James Do, Willow Yang, Michael Riskin and Jay Cosel, who no longer works with the firm. San Francisco-based partners Michael Brown and Ralph Pais provided assistance, along with foreign associate Gilad Yacubovich.

Roussel did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment.
