Obama is good for K Street

From lobbying firm K&L Gates:

Washington, D.C.— Law firm K&L Gates LLP has launched a Global Government Solutions initiative to assist clients in managing the threats and opportunities presented by government authorities around the world.

“The economic crisis has transformed the relationship between business and government,” said Peter J. Kalis, K&L Gates Chairman and Global Managing Partner. “Governments around the world are stimulating their economies, reforming areas such as health care, financial services, taxation, and employment, and attempting to prevent future crises through aggressive new regulations and enforcement actions. In the current environment, K&L Gates’ clients are faced with significant challenges – and unprecedented opportunities.”

“K&L Gates has one of the largest global government-related practices of any law firm,” said Michael J. Missal, co-leader of K&L Gates’ policy and regulatory practice area. “Our Global Government Solutions resources offer a uniquely effective set of capabilities, combining a broad range of legal and industry experience with a geographic reach extending across three continents.”

Missal continued: “More than 400 of K&L Gates’ lawyers have served in government, many in senior policymaking roles. This enables us to provide clients with a deep understanding of the key decision makers and government processes that affect their businesses.
