Bill Choe is a partner in the Mergers and Acquisitions practice of Paul Hastings and is based in the firm’s Palo Alto office. He is a leading corporate and securities lawyer with deep expertise in domestic and cross-border technology M&A (including stock and asset sales and purchases, mergers, tender offers, spin-ins, and divisional sales), having led dozens of significant buy-side and sell-side representations of public and private tech companies in deals ranging in value from a few million dollars to billions of dollars.

Mr. Choe also specializes in advising high-technology companies at early-through-exit stages of their growth cycle, as well as venture capital and private equity funds that focus on investing in such companies.

Mr. Choe previously served as co-head of the global technology industry group and global head of tech M&A at another international law firm. He also has served as vice president of legal at a publicly-traded information and analytics company, where he led the department’s M&A, securities, and corporate governance matters.
