Global law firm K&L Gates has added Sasha Burstein as a partner in the firm’s investment management, hedge funds and alternative investments practice in San Francisco.
She joins K&L Gates from Paul Hastings.
Burstein counsels investment advisors and institutional investors on matters involving private investment funds, including hedge, private equity, and hybrid funds. She advises on legal and regulatory matters such as registration and operation, mergers and acquisition transactions, and regulatory compliance, as well as the structuring, negotiating, and documenting of alternative investments.
“We are extremely pleased that Sasha has joined us,” says Edward Sangster, administrative partner of K&L Gates’ San Francisco office. “She is a rising star in the investment management industry, and she will assist in fortifying our position in the Bay Area.”
K&L Gates’ investment management practice is one of the largest in the world, with more than 150 lawyers in offices in the US, Europe, Australia and Asia.
Burstein is the 14th partner, of counsel or other professional to join the firm’s investment management practice in the past year, following the earlier arrivals of Hilger von Livonius, Philipp Riedl, and Michael Harris in Munich, Arturo Requenez II in Miami and New York, Derek Steingarten, Robert Sichel, Peter Shea, Edward Dartley, and Bruce MacLennan in New York, Brian Vargo in Pittsburgh, Richard Kerr and Kenneth Holston in Boston and Todd Betke in Washington, DC.
