Associate Attorneys Liana Minassian and Vivian Le, along with Paralegals Aaron Kunitomo and Mayra Ramsey, also helped with the deal, which closed June 30. 

“It’s always great to help an innovative company like Interlace move to the next level,” Mukhopadhyay said. “I look forward to seeing how they grow and expand the product after securing this latest round of financing.”
