Diane Holt Frankle Honored as a Top Women Lawyer in California by The Daily Journal

May 7, 2014

The Daily Journal has selected Palo Alto Corporate Partner Diane Holt Frankle for its annual list of the Top Women Lawyers in California for the third consecutive year. Frankle, whose practice focuses on M&A and corporate governance law, is one of just 25 transactional lawyers featured on the list. In an interview with The Daily Journal, she discusses her representation of BioTime, Inc. in its acquisition of stem cell assets from Geron Corp, noting, “It required a lot of creative thinking in making sure we had the right licenses, making sure we had the liability issue covered and arranging for insurance. We spent a lot of time working through that structure and it was a lot of fun.” These kinds of “complex, multifaceted transactions that require a certain degree of creativity” are, to Frankle, the most enjoyable to work on, and according to her, “They’re the kinds of transactions that a lot of people call us to handle.”

Each year, The Daily Journal reviews hundreds of nominations from law firms, public agencies, nonprofits and universities before choosing lawyers whose work is having a broad impact on the California legal community for its Top Women Lawyers list.
