K&L Gates Adds a Charleston Office

K&L Gates opened its 24th U.S.  office recently in Charleston, South Carolina.  This is their 40th office to open worldwide.  According to K&L Gates chairman, Peter Kalis, “South Carolina has one of the most business-friendly public policy climates in the United States…and we expect it to be, increasingly, a destination for national and international businesses….”  Seven former Parker Poe partners are opening the Charleston office and will focus on the expected increase in business, maritime, and resort and hospitality opportunities in Charleston.  These opportunities are expected to develop with the opening of the Boeing plant in North Charleston and the expected surge in shipping opportunities that will result from the expansion of the Panama Canal in 2014.
