Law360, New York (January 20, 2009, 12:00 AM EST) -- Despite the current state of the U.S. deals market, K&L Gates LLP has weathered the economic storm with less adverse impact to its corporate, M&A and securities practice than most if its competitors thanks to the firm’s global reach and focus on mid-market deals, according to Eric Simonson, co-leader of the practice.
“We have a very substantial practice. Despite what’s an obvious downturn in deal activity, we have continued to do a substantial number of deals,” Simonson said.
