K&L Gates is a fully integrated global law firm with approximately 2,000 lawyers across five continents. Our broad global platform and deep latticework of relationships across our offices and practices means we can help our clients respond to diverse legal issues and risks through the service of one law firm, with one communication.


In 2017, for the third year in a row, we were recognized as being one of the 10 strongest U.S. law firm brands by legal market research company Acritas. Our commitment to client service and dedication to delivering value to clients has resulted in five consecutive years on BTI’s “Client Service 30,” placing in the top half for three consecutive years. In 2016, K&L Gates was named one of the top 25 corporate law firms in the United States, according to a survey of U.S. general counsel by Corporate Board Member magazine and FTI Consulting. In 2015, The Financial Times ranked us as a Highly Commended firm in the Compliance & Technology category of its Innovative Lawyers - North America report in recognition of the groundbreaking K&L Gates HUB, in addition to giving the firm a Commended ranking for our Cyber Civil Rights Legal Project.

The industry recognition K&L Gates has garnered over the past five years emanates from the foundation of a global community aligned on behalf of our clients. The people at K&L Gates are committed to working together to create a legacy for each other, the firm, our clients, and the communities we serve. We thrive in an inclusive and socially conscious environment that embraces diversity and takes a holistic approach to the career evolution of all our professionals.

We take pride in constantly striving for innovation, imagination, and an entrepreneurial spirit. We come up with big ideas and then roll up our sleeves to get the job done, guiding our clients through their most complex issues in a variety of industry sectors and across multiple regions of the world. An indication of the firm’s collaborative approach to client service is that our top 20 clients used lawyers from an average of 17.4 K&L Gates offices in 2015, and 480 of the firm’s 500 largest clients used two or more offices.

We foster an atmosphere in which a great idea can come from anywhere. In 2014, a group of associates conceptualized an idea where the firm would harness its vast network in a massive, global volunteer effort to help those affected by hunger. They pitched the idea to firm management, who immediately approved it and provided resources to execute the program. The K&L Gates Global Day of Service, now an annual effort, was named The American Lawyer’s 2014 Global Legal Awards "Global Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative of the Year.”

Through our diversity and inclusion efforts and our commitment to serving those most in need, we strengthen our firm, enhance our ability to serve the needs of global clients, and make the communities in which we live and work better places. In 2016, K&L Gates was named among Yale Law Women (YLW)’s top 10 Family Friendly Firms. YLW evaluated important family friendliness indicators by collecting data on each firm’s policies relating to part-time, parental leave, gender equity, billing requirements, professional development, and pro bono policies. For the seventh consecutive year, the Human Rights Campaign awarded K&L Gates a 100 percent score in the organization’s 2017 Corporate Equality Index and named the firm a “Top Law Firm for Equality.”
