K&L Gates LLP Key Developments

K&L Gates Announces Management Changes

K&L Gates has unveiled the two partners who will succeed outgoing global chair and managing partner Peter Kalis, effective from March 1 next year. Current vice chair for practice management Michael Caccese will take on the role of chairman of the firm's management committee while James Segerdahl, currently vice chairman, becomes global managing partner and CEO of the firm. Caccese and Segerdahl's appointment followed a two-month process that began in early July. K&L Gates' 75-partner global management committee unanimously recommended the duo during the period of partner consultation and then finalised the appointments through a unanimous vote. Segerdahl, a commercial litigator whose client base includes corporate policy holders with insurance coverage disputes, is a K&L Gates lifer. He joined legacy Kirkpatrick & Lockhart in 1987 following his introduction to the firm the previous year as a summer associate. Caccese joined the firm in 2001 in its Boston office. He had previously had a succession of in-house roles including latterly senior vice president and general counsel to the CFA Institute.
