K&L Gates to Merge with Middletons in January

In an update to a story we previously covered, the law firm of K&L Gates from Pittsburgh is preparing to merge with the Australian firm of Middletons. The merger is set to take effect in the month of January. The merger will create a law firm with over 2,000 lawyers in 46 offices, according to Global Legal Post.

The merger is going to operate using the name K&L Gates and it will add the 300 lawyers and four offices from Middletons. The four Middletons offices are in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

In a joint statement, K&L Gates chairman and global managing partner Peter Kalis and Middletons national managing partner Nick Nicholas said the following:
