K&L Gates

Carol Elder Bruce, who joined K&L Gates in 2010, is a leading member of the DC office’s white-collar investigations practice. Early in her career, she spent 10 years as an assistant US attorney for the District of Columbia. Now she represents individuals and corporations before Congress, in administrative proceedings within federal agencies and at trial.

Alan Berkeley and Jeffrey Maletta also advise on FCPA matters.

Several lawyers in the DC office concentrate their practice on advising financial institutions and other companies on securities enforcement matters and internal investigations, including Stephen Topetzes, Shanda Hastings and Stavroula Lambrakopoulos.

The partners in K&L Gates’s DC office pride themselves on knowing the distinct personalities of the plethora of government agencies that regulate their clients, as well as how to navigate those organisations.

Michael Missal, who headed the government enforcement practice, is now in government as US Veterans Affairs Inspector General.
