CKR Law announced today the opening of a second office in London. The office is a newly-formed law firm, CKR Law (UK) Limited, which received its regulatory approval from the Solicitors Regulation Authority in January. The law firm will commence operations immediately under the moniker, CKR Law London.
The London office further boosts CKR Law’s presence in the UK while broadening the firm’s corporate capabilities in Europe. It is essential for CKR Law to be able to serve its global clients in London in response to a growing demand for CKR Law’s services and the new opportunities available there.
CKR Law London will be led by Veronika Koenig-Roach and Jeffrey Rinde, its Managing Partners and Directors. Mr. Rinde, Managing Partner of CKR Law, has been authorized by the SRA as a Registered Foreign Lawyer in England and Wales. Mrs. Koenig-Roach’s practice includes corporate, commercial, company law, capital markets, financial regulation and investigation, commercial dispute resolution, insolvency and bankruptcy with a focus on broad cross border transactions involving start-ups, early stage and growth companies and public offerings.
“We are delighted to welcome Veronika to our law firm”, commented Jeffrey Rinde, Managing Partner of CKR Law. “Strengthening our corporate, banking and finance capabilities in London was a priority for CKR. London is a key international financial center with the greatest GDP of any city in Europe. We expect this office to quickly develop into an integral component of our global platform."
“I am delighted to join CKR Law”, remarked Veronika Koenig-Roach. “CKR Law’s strength and depth in the United States and Asia, its presence across key European jurisdictions and its overall global reach will offer our UK and international clients with high-quality, cost-effective multi-jurisdictional legal services.”
In addition to corporate finance, the CKR Law London expects to focus on cross-border mergers and acquisitions, international arbitration and litigation, intellectual property, international trade, employment and regulatory matters.
