Global law firm K&L Gates LLP has hired Mitchell Weiss and Balazs Danko as partners in the firm’s tax practice. Both join K&L Gates’ Chicago office from Deloitte Tax LLP, where Weiss was managing director and Danko a senior manager in the international tax practice. They are accompanied in their move by counsel Josh Fieldstone, who served as an international tax manager at Deloitte.
Adam Tejeda, a New York partner and a leader of the firm’s tax practice, remarked, “We are very excited to have Mitch and his team join our group. They bring a sophisticated skillset focused on multinational clients, and will be a strong complement to our existing cross-border practices.”
“We are thrilled that Mitchell, Balazs, and Josh have joined our Chicago office,” said Michael Martinez, managing partner of K&L Gates’ Chicago office. “Their collective experience greatly enhances our international tax practice, and their addition builds upon the number of talented lawyers we have welcomed in Chicago this past year.”
