Alan Seem joins DLA Piper’s Corporate practice in Northern California

DLA Piper announced today that Alan Seem has joined the firm’s Corporate practice as a partner in Northern California, based in the Silicon Valley office.

Seem focuses his practice on SEC-registered and Rule 144A/Regulation S securities offerings, mergers and acquisitions, venture capital transactions and private equity investments, as well as going-private transactions. He also regularly advises companies and their boards of directors on corporate governance, including environmental, social and governance (ESG) and other disclosure-related matters.

“Alan’s addition strengthens our capital markets and technology sector capabilities and expands our presence in Northern California, a key market for many of our clients,” said Kathleen Ruhland, US chair and global co-chair of DLA Piper’s Corporate practice. “Alan has handled a broad range of complex corporate transactions for clients across many industries, including fintech, renewable energy, software, telecom and pharmaceuticals, among many others, and his experience and technical skills will be highly valuable.”

“We’ve seen a large increase in activity in the SPAC markets over the past year, and Alan will enhance our ability to meet the high demand for sophisticated guidance related to public company and capital markets transactions,” said Jeffrey Selman, chair of the firm’s SPAC Transactional practice. “He also brings extensive experience and deep relationships in China and throughout the Asia-Pacific region, which will be a significant asset to our global team.”

Seem joins from Jones Day. He received his JD from Columbia University School of Law and his BA from Dartmouth College.
