Maria E. Bergenhem

Managing Associate


Maria Bergenhem advises companies on corporate matters from early stages through exit. She particularly enjoys seeing founders’ hard work pay off.

Maria works for clients across various growth stages and industries, with particular focus on financial services, pharmaceutical and software. She provides advice on tech company investments and corporate governance, mergers & acquisitions and private equity investments, and capital markets offerings.

Recently, Maria helped advise New York-based edtech startup Teachable on its acquisition by Brazil- and Netherlands-based Hotmart Technology, a global platform for online resources.

Maria is also active in Orrick's innovative Impact Finance group, working for interesting clients who have a mission of doing good.

Maria has been recognized as a "Rising Star" by Super Lawyers in 2020.
