DLA Piper boosts West Coast with Asia tech team

DLA Piper has bolstered its US practice with the addition of two corporate and securities partners to its Silicon Valley office.

Khoa Do and Michael Reagan have joined the firm from Greenberg Traurig, where the former was a partner and chair of the firm’s Silicon Valley corporate and securities practice. Reagan was a partner at the firm.

According to Jay Rains, co-chair of DLA Piper’s corporate and securities practice, the additions bolster an already strong team in Silicon Valley. He added that Do and Reagan have strong business relationships in the US as well as in the broader technology community, particularly in Vietnam and China.

Do’s experience has focused on emerging growth and established technology companies on matters such as corporate formation and governance, venture capital financings, public offerings, M&A and public company reporting.

Do has also developed a number of relationships with Asia companies and entrepreneurs. He speaks fluent Vietnamese and his clients include Vietnamese state-owned enterprises as well as Vietnamese venture capital funds.

Reagan also has venture capital and M&A experience. He is fluent in Lao and Thai.
