Commercial Litigation

K&L Gates' John Rotunno is, perhaps, the best litigator I have ever worked with. He assisted on a fax class action suit against a company I worked for. The potential liability was well in the hundreds of millions of dollars. The settlement paid by my company was 2.5 million. Not only is John an excellent legal talent, but also his temperament, composure and civility are on display at all times. Excellent experience, just like many others I have had with John as counsel.

It is not just Mark's knowledge, experience and fast 24/7 email responses that make me enjoy working with K&L Gates, it is also the team that Mark has assembled.

Corporate Governance Law

We have worked with Gary Kocher from K&L Gates Seattle for the better part of 20 years. He is an extraordinary lawyer both for his technical knowledge but even more so for his thoughtful judgement in difficult business settings. He has seen us through all the stages of our growth from scruffy start-up to being listed as a public company on the LSE-AIM in Europe. In addition to Gary, we have worked with his colleague Jonathan Miner who also has my deep respect.
