Corporate Partner Paul Wassgren Joins DLA Piper in Los Angeles


By a MetNews Staff Writer


Paul Wassgren has joined DLA Piper’s corporate practice as a partner in Los Angeles, the firm said in a release.

Wassgren had been a partner at Fox Rothschild LLP, which he joined seven years ago. He “advises a wide array of clients, from individual entrepreneurs to domestic companies to multinational and publically traded corporations on securities, project and real estate finance, mergers and acquisitions and general corporate matters,” DLA Piper said.

His previous work has included advising clients in various countries, including China, Australia, Mexico, Belize and India, in a range of corporate matters. He also previously worked in business development for a biotechnology research and development company.

“Paul has developed an extensive network of relationships, in the Southern California region, as well as nationally and internationally, that will enable us to better serve clients in a wide range of industries and matters not only in Los Angeles but on our global platform,” Perrie Weiner, co-managing partner of DLA Piper in Los Angeles, said. “We believe his background in biotechnology, real estate and securities, among others, not only complements our existing practice groups but will further enhance what is an already strong Corporate group in California.”

Wassgren, a State Bar member since 2005, holds an undergraduate degree from Pepperdine University and M.B.A. and law degrees from Oxford University in England.
