Has anyone else noticed that King & Spalding is expanding at a dizzying rate into disparate parts of the world?
Early last week the Atlanta-based law firm announced the launch of an Abu Dhabi office. It’s the third K&S outpost in the region — after Dubai and Riyadh — and the eighth new office for the firm since the start of 2007. The new locations for 2008 include: Austin, which opened in May with litigator Mike Stenglein, the former managing partner of Dewey LeBoeuf‘s Austin office; San Francisco, which kicked off in April; and a Silicon Valley practice that started in February with a team of seven lawyers from Perkins Coie. And in 2007, the law firm launched offices in Frankfurt, Charlotte, Dubai and Riyadh. All told, King & Spalding now has 13 locations (it’s also in New York and London) and 800 lawyers. The institution that’s tried to shake its image as an Atlanta behemoth has ventured a long ways from Tara.
