K&L Gates was named among the top corporate law firms in a survey of U.S. general counsel by Corporate Board Member magazine and FTI Consulting in 2016.

K&L Gates has one of the legal industry’s most substantial “full-market” corporate transactional and counseling practices.  Our mergers and acquisitions lawyers practice on an integrated basis across our offices throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, Australia, South America, and the Middle East, and can field geographically concentrated or diverse teams, as needed.

K&L Gates was named among the top corporate law firms in a survey of U.S. general counsel by Corporate Board Member magazine and FTI Consulting.  Published in the magazine’s “America’s Best Corporate Law Firms,” the rankings are based on a survey of general counsel from U.S. public companies regarding national firms they would retain for a variety of corporate legal matters.  In 2013, K&L Gates was named “Law Firm of the Year" by Mergers & Acquisitions magazine, as part of its annual M&A Mid-Market Awards. The M&A practice was also recognized by U.S. News & World Report-Best Lawyers as a “Tier 1” National Practice. The M&A team has worked on transactions ranging in size from a few million dollars to more than $15 billion.

The 2017 Global Corporate and Transactional Highlights Brochure showcases our work in several industries across our five-continent platform.

Our corporate transactional client base includes large multi-national corporations, emerging growth and middle-market companies, and a full range of market participants including private equity firms, investment banks, lenders, and other financial institutions.  Our M&A team has substantial experience representing companies of all sizes in acquiring, selling, licensing, jointly developing, outsourcing, and exploiting critical products, systems, and services.

The M&A lawyers at K&L Gates work particularly well with companies that allow us to invest in the relationship and truly get to know their professional personnel, key legal issues, and business needs.  K&L Gates strives to achieve an appropriate degree of integration with the in-house legal staff of our clients, while at the same time maintaining the necessary professional independence and judgment, at all times being mindful that our clients have differing and evolving corporate cultures, ways of doing deals, approaches to internal and external staffing and communications, and tolerance for risk.  This helps to effect process improvement, reduce cost and time for execution, leverage institutional knowledge, and work collaboratively with lawyers and other professionals who have a broad and deep knowledge of what is important to their business.
