Renée Delphin-Rodriguez


Renée Delphin-Rodriguez is a partner in Crowell & Moring’s Los Angeles office and a member of its Corporate and Health Care groups. Her practice focuses on mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, equity and debt financing, corporate governance, general commercial transactions, and complex commercial agreements (including outsourcing agreements and service agreements). Renée’s clients span a wide range of industries (including financial services and technology), with a particular emphasis on companies within the health care industry.

Renée has particular experience advising on the creation and funding of special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs), as well as advising on the use of SPACs as a means of taking companies public. She also advises large corporations on a variety of significant M&A and other strategic corporate transactions. She regularly assists public and private corporations on corporate governance, compliance, and general corporate matters.

Renée has a unique blend of law firm and in-house experience. She served as assistant general counsel to a Fortune 500 health care company and general counsel to a health care management services organization. Renée’s broad understanding of managed care and value-based payment arrangements, combined with her corporate experience, allows her to effectively guide clients through complex transactions and provide strategic advice in a heavily regulated industry.

Renée was in the 2015 Fellows Program of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD). She is active in Los Angeles’ civic community. She sits on the board of Planned Parenthood Los Angeles and Homeboy Industries.

Renée was a law clerk to the Honorable Milan Smith, Jr. at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
