A former director of business development at K&L Gates is facing a criminal complaint in Massachusetts stemming from alleged threats he made to a university professor who had expressed disdain for President Donald Trump and his voters.

The event took place in September 2017, when Matthew Prinn, who at the time was working for the global legal giant in Boston, allegedly left a threatening voicemail for a professor at Bridgewater State University outside the city.

Prinn’s profile on professional networking website LinkedIn states that he stopped working at K&L Gates in January. He joined the firm in 2006 after serving as a business development specialist at Robinson & Cole and Goulston & Storrs, according to his LinkedIn profile. A K&L Gates spokesman did not return a message with questions about Prinn’s employment.
