K&L Gates Expands Corporate/M&A, Latin America Practices with Addition of San Francisco Partner

14 September 2016

San Francisco - The San Francisco office of global law firm K&L Gates LLP has added Eric Save as a partner in the corporate/M&A and Latin America practices. Save joins K&L Gates from Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP.

Save represents clients in the United States, Mexico, Brazil, and other parts of Latin America on a variety of international corporate and transactional matters. These include cross-border M&A, venture capital investments, start-up company affairs, joint ventures, energy and mining projects, and the establishment of business operations and ventures both domestically and abroad. A former executive, in-house lawyer, and co-founder of a Mexican software company, Save has handled transactions for clients in a wide range of sectors, including the technology, financial services, venture capital, private equity, electrical power, oil & gas, infrastructure, commodities trading, consumer products, sports/entertainment, and wine & spirits industries.

“We are pleased that Eric has joined us,” said Edward P. Sangster, administrative partner of K&L Gates’ San Francisco office. “Like most of our local, corporate partners, Eric’s practice is focused on a global clientele and cross-border transactions. We are thrilled that he has joined our global platform, and we expect his Latin American practice to thrive here.”

Save is the third partner to join K&L Gates’ San Francisco office in as many months, following the earlier arrivals of investment management partner Sasha Burstein and intellectual property partner Jason Novak. He also is one of more than a dozen new partners to the firm’s corporate/M&A practice this year. K&L Gates corporate practice is among the most substantial in the legal industry, and recently was named by in-house counsel as one of America’s Best Corporate Law Firms by Corporate Board Member magazine. The firm’s Latin America practice represents multinational companies across diverse industries — ranging from energy, infrastructure, real estate, and transportation to mining, retail, telecommunications, and hospitality — on entry and exit strategies, corporate and tax structuring, and regulatory matters in Latin America. 

K&L Gates comprises approximately 2,000 lawyers globally who practice in fully integrated offices located on five continents. The firm represents leading multinational corporations, growth and middle-market companies, capital markets participants and entrepreneurs in every major industry group as well as public sector entities, educational institutions, philanthropic organizations and individuals.
