Transactional Attorneys Fonss & Estigarribia Join Klinedinst

SAN DIEGO - Klinedinst PC is pleased to announce that Christian P. Fonss and Mariel I. Estigarribia, principals of transactional and securities firm Fonss & Estigarribia LLP, have joined the firm as Shareholders.

Both Fonss and Estigarribia were previously with Foley & Lardner LLP before launching their boutique law firm in 2009. There, they served domestic and international clients in a broad array of corporate, transactional and securities law matters, ranging from entity formation to venture capital financings and mergers and acquisitions (M&A).

Both attorneys take a hands-on approach to law, viewing clients' needs from both a legal and business perspective. Their clients have ranged from entrepreneurs and start-up ventures, to large privately-held and publicly-traded companies, as well as private investors, investment banks and not-for-profit corporations.

"We are truly excited to be able to welcome Chris and Mariel into our transactional group," said John D. Klinedinst, Founder and CEO of Klinedinst PC. "Their practice perfectly complements our existing transactional capabilities, and their wide range of experience in M&A, corporate, securities, and transactional matters will truly enhance the service we provide clients."

In addition to joining the firm as shareholders, Fonss and Estigarribia will immediately serve as co-Chairs of the Corporate and Securities and Transactional and M&A practice groups.

"Some larger law firms forget one basic rule: it's all about client service," added Mr. Fonss. "That's what drew us to this firm. Klinedinst's high caliber of attorneys and their focus on providing exceptional client service were very appealing. Plus, we are able to better serve our existing clients through the resources that only a full service firm can provide."

Fonss and Estigarribia will continue handling domestic and international client matters from the firm's San Diego and Santa Ana offices.

Klinedinst PC is pleased to welcome Mr. Fonss and Ms. Estigarribia to the firm. To learn more about Mr. Fonss, please visit:
