K&L Gates Continues Growth of Corporate/M&A Practice with Seattle Partner Addition

16 June 2016
Seattle - The Seattle office of global law firm K&L Gates LLP welcomes Christopher J. (CJ) Voss as a partner in the corporate/M&A practice. Voss joins K&L Gates from Stoel Rives LLP, where he practiced for more than 20 years.

Previously an attorney/advisor with the Office of the Chief Counsel for International Commerce at the U.S. Department of Commerce in Washington, D.C., and an associate at Linklaters in Brussels, Belgium, Voss counsels senior management and boards of directors of public and private companies on mergers, acquisitions, financings, and other strategic transactions. He also advises entrepreneurs and emerging growth companies on business formation and founders’ issues as well as early stage and venture capital financings. Voss has worked with clients in the forest products, life sciences, software and information technology, consumer products, retail, and financial services sectors, among others.

“We are pleased to welcome CJ to K&L Gates,” said Pallavi Mehta Wahi, administrative partner of K&L Gates’ Seattle office. “He brings significant corporate governance, M&A, and securities experience, particularly in the angel and venture communities. We anticipate wonderful synergies between CJ’s long-term clients and the expansive resources of our platform.”

With lawyers in offices across five continents, K&L Gates’ leading corporate/M&A practice is among the most substantial in the legal industry. The firm recently was named by in-house counsel as one of America’s Best Corporate Law Firms by Corporate Board Member magazine.

Voss is the 12th new partner addition to the corporate/M&A practice in 2016, following the earlier arrivals of Arturo Requenez in Miami, Stephen Tan in Taipei, Henry Wang in Beijing, Jill Louis in Dallas, Bryce Linsenmayer in Houston, Michelle Repp in Pittsburgh, Fatiha El-Boubsi in Brussels, Ian Liao in Shanghai, and Nick Humphrey, Hal Lloyd, and Daniel Atkin in Sydney.
