Greenberg Traurig Expands Corporate Practice

Law firm Greenberg Traurig added Sunna Choi to its Los Angeles office and Kyle K. Fox to its Austin, TX office, both as shareholders.

The hiring of Choi and Fox follows the recent addition of more than 12 corporate shareholders across the firm.

“The collective, unique experience of Sunna and Kyle will add another dimension to our already robust corporate team. We are thrilled they are joining us at this time of significant growth,” said Bruce I. March, co-chair of Greenberg Traurig’s global Corporate Practice. “Our firm, corporate practice, and, most importantly, our clients will greatly benefit from their collective expertise in complex transactions.”

Choi will concentrate her practice on corporate financing and related matters, including private equity-related corporate finance transactions, secured and unsecured syndicated financings, private placements of debt, distressed debt investments, restructuring transactions, venture capital financings and cross-border financings. Choi represents borrowers, private equity sponsors, agents and institutional lenders and holders of senior and subordinated debt.

“Sunna is an exceptional finance lawyer and we are excited to have her join our firm’s corporate and private equity practice,” said Mark J. Kelson, chair of the Los Angeles Corporate Practice. “Sunna is an example of the high caliber talent attracted to Greenberg Traurig and a wonderful addition to our growing Los Angeles Corporate Practice.”

Fox focuses his practice on mergers, acquisitions and other strategic transactions for private equity and venture capital backed companies and private companies ranging from startups to international business ventures. Fox develops strategies to assist companies and investors in all types of financing transactions.

“We are excited to welcome Kyle to our growing corporate team,” said Gregory J. Casas, administrative shareholder of the Austin office. “Kyle’s finance experience expands the extensive capabilities we are able to offer our local, regional, and international clients particularly in the technology industry for which Austin is a hotbed.”

Choi joins Greenberg Traurig from O’Melveny & Myers, where she served as counsel in the Corporate Finance Group.

Fox joins Greenberg Traurig from Miller, Egan, Molter & Nelson, where he was a partner.
