Orange County - Global law firm K&L Gates LLP welcomes Jason Lee as a partner in the corporate practice. He joins K&L Gates’ Orange County office from Stradling Yocca Carlson & Rauth.
Lee focuses his practice on corporate transactions such as mergers and acquisitions and private equity transactions, as well as general corporate matters. This includes advising public and private clients in the middle-market and emerging growth sectors on company formation, SEC reporting requirements and registrations, federal and state securities laws and compliance, corporate governance matters, joint ventures, and executive employment agreements.
