Kerr focuses his practice on counselling investment companies, investment advisers, broker-dealers, banks, and other financial institutions on corporate, regulatory, and transactional matters, including formation and registration, reorganisation transactions, mergers and acquisitions, marketing and advertising, and public and private offerings of debt and equity securities. He has substantial experience representing financial institutions before federal and state securities and banking regulators and self-regulatory organisations, including the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and the National Securities Clearing Corporation (NSCC). Kerr also advises independent directors of registered investment companies and the boards of directors of banking clients.
“We are delighted that Rich is joining us, and he is a welcome addition to our ranks,” says Mark Haddad, administrative partner of K&L Gates’ Boston office. “His background, experience, and highly sophisticated skill set make him an important and instant resource to the ever-changing needs of our fast-expanding client base in the investment management practice in Boston and around the globe.”
Kerr is the fifth partner or of counsel addition to K&L Gates’ investment management, hedge funds and alternative investments practice this year, following the earlier arrivals of Edward Dartley in New York, Kenneth Holston in Boston, Jacob Ghanty in London, and Michael Wong in Hong Kong.
