Prior to joining Jones Day in 2013, Ken lived and practiced for nearly 20 years in Brussels and London. While in Brussels, he served as European "outside" general counsel to a publicly traded telecommunications company, providing legal support to senior management as the company organized, operated, and ultimately disposed of significant investments in a number of mobile telecommunications enterprises in Europe and the Middle East. Following this period in Brussels, Ken spent almost 15 years in London, assisting clients with a variety of international transactional matters. During this period, he served as European managing partner of an AmLaw 100 firm, responsible for day-to-day management, strategic planning, and client service. This management role provided Ken with first-hand experience managing a large, international business.
