Perkins Coie Adds Experienced M&A Lawyer Tom Stromberg as Partner in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES (January 29, 2019) – Perkins Coie is pleased to announce that G. Thomas Stromberg has joined the firm’s M&A practice as a partner in Los Angeles.

Tom has extensive experience representing investors in the acquisition and financing of private companies.  He often represents promoters and investors in the structuring of private companies and debt and equity investors supporting them. He regularly works on middle-market M&A transactions, private financings, joint ventures and other matters with technology clients, specifically those in the life sciences, software and cryptocurrency industries.  Many of the matters he handles are cross-border transactions with Asian clients or counterparties.  He has a strong reputation in Japan as he previously practiced in Tokyo and speaks Japanese.

“Tom has worked with an array of industries in North America, in Asia and around the world – and he’ll be a nice addition to Perkins Coie and our M&A team,” said Jeff Beuche, Chair of Perkins Coie’s Mergers & Acquisitions practice. “In addition to his ties to Japan, Tom is well known in Silicon Valley, and he’s been at the forefront of the legal and regulatory issues surrounding crypto assets and other emerging technologies.”

Tom joins from Jenner & Block, where he was a partner and co-head of that firm’s media and technology group. He has represented a variety of private and public investment funds as well as private and family-owned businesses in domestic and cross-border transactions. He previously founded and managed a Palo Alto office for a New York-based law firm.

“Tom is a highly regarded M&A lawyer who counsels clients of all sizes, with an emphasis on those in the tech space,” said Jon G. Daryanani, Managing Partner for the Los Angeles office. “He is another important addition to our growing presence in Southern California, following the arrival last year of well-known privacy lawyer Dominique Shelton Leipzig.”

Tom received his J.D. from the University of Utah and his B.A., with honors, from Harvard College.

Perkins Coie’s M&A and Private Equity practice consists of more than 100 dedicated attorneys representing public and private companies and investors in domestic and cross-border mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, carve-outs, spin-offs, recapitalizations, growth equity investments and other transactions.
