Mayer Brown launches PA corporate and securities practice
Mayer Brown has announced the launch of a corporate and securities practice in its Palo Alto office. The practice will be led by Jennifer Carlson and Nina Flax, who will relocate from Chicago.
“The addition of Jen and Nina to the Palo Alto office bolsters Mayer Brown’s ability to provide legal counsel in California to both domestic and foreign companies doing business in the Bay Area and Silicon Valley, particularly on transactions related to capital markets, private equity, mergers and acquisitions, cross-border joint ventures and corporate governance,” said Edward D. Johnson, the head of Mayer Brown’s Palo Alto office.
Carlson added: “California is one of the fastest-growing international economies, and companies across the globe—particularly those based in East Asia—are increasingly looking to invest or operate in the Bay Area and Silicon Valley. Therefore, it is more important than ever for such companies to have access to a law firm with a local presence and strong global platform—like Mayer Brown—to advise them on cross-border M&A, capital markets and general corporate matters.”
