March 24, 2004

Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP announced today that John D. Tishler has joined the firm's Corporate Practice Group in San Diego. Tishler's move to Sheppard Mullin comes in the same week that distinguished corporate lawyer John J. Hentrich joined the firm's Del Mar Heights office.

Tishler has more than 12 years of legal experience representing public and private companies in complex business matters, both domestic and international. His practice encompasses business transactions, technology, corporate finance, securities compliance, mergers and acquisitions, and compensation.

Robert Sbardellati, administrative partner of the San Diego office, commented, "We are extremely pleased with John joining us. His securities expertise coupled with his knowledge of the technology industry complements the emerging growth business being done in the San Diego and Del Mar offices." Added Larry Braun, chair of the Corporate Practice Group, "John's credentials and experience enhance a solid practice group that continues to expand to meet client needs."

Tishler regularly advises emerging and established clients on formations and restructurings, angel and venture capital, corporate governance, strategic partnerships, and joint ventures, with a significant part of his practice involved in the business, tax and securities issues associated with executive compensation, broad-based equity compensation programs and executive wealth diversification strategies.

Tishler received his law degree from the Yale Law School in 1992 and his undergraduate degree from Cornell University in 1989.
