Congratulations to our client Hero Labs (Hero) which announced the launch of its first product, a sandwich roll that looks, smells and tastes just like traditional bread, but with a significantly improved nutritional profile.

The Orrick team advising Hero is led by Dan Kim and includes Kevin Kearney, Sabrina Benyammi, Qipeng Hu, David Benhamou, Kristin Cornuelle and Stanley Santos. Orrick advised Hero on its negotiations with Subway® and previously advised the company on its $30 million Series A and $2 million Series Seed financings, as well as on various corporate, IP and trademark filings and other matters.
