Troutman Sanders launches in NC after hiring K&L team
Troutman Sanders has launched an office in Charlotte, North Carolina, following the hire of a five-partner team of corporate and real estate lawyers from [K&L Gates 1579.
“Charlotte has been on our radar screen for quite some time,” said chairman Robert Webb. “We were waiting for the right opportunity, and this was it.”
The office will be led by Walter D. Fisher, Jr, and the other new partners are G. Lee Cory, Jr., David H. Jones, Patrick L. Ridinger, and Paul A. Steffens.
The group has worked together for almost 20 years, starting out together at Kennedy Covington Lobdell & Hickman and then working under the banner of K&L Gates after the two firms merged in 2008.
The new office will be Troutman Sanders’ 16th base, alongside offices in California, Chicago, New York, Oregon, Virginia and Washington, D.C., Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai and more.
