 |  August 19, 2019

Baker McKenzie has added highly regarded M&A lawyer Leif King in Palo Alto, as the Firm continues to rapidly expand its transactional practice within the key Silicon Valley market and globally.

Leif joins Baker McKenzie from Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, where he served as head of that firm’s corporate/M&A practice in Silicon Valley. A seasoned M&A lawyer, Leif represents clients in a wide variety of corporate transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, private equity transactions, activist investor situations, recapitalizations, spin-offs and strategic investments. He also advises public and private companies on corporate, corporate governance and securities law compliance issues.

“There is no better way to demonstrate our commitment to this market than to bring on board Leif King, one of the area’s best transactional lawyers,” said Colin Murray, Baker McKenzie’s North American Chief Executive Officer. “Leif’s expertise will enhance our existing team‘s cross-border and post-acquisition capabilities for current and future clients, and will enable us to provide a more robust level of services throughout the deal lifecycle.”
