King & Spalding strengthens corporate, finance and investments practice group

King & Spalding has welcomed Mitch Tiras to the firm’s corporate, finance, and investments (CFI) practice group as a partner. He is based in the Houston office.

Tiras represents business entities, private equity sponsors, and portfolio companies in complex transactions, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and corporate governance matters. He also advises clients on the tax aspects of structuring and implementing transactions to maximize after-tax investment returns.

“Mitch has a broad and diverse skill set and a strong following of private equity, public and private company, and family office clients who turn to him for all manner of corporate transactions and advice,” said Todd Holleman, head of the firm’s CFI practice group. “He will play an important role in our continued growth in energy and infrastructure, provides a strong complement to our corporate capabilities in Texas, and brings proven leadership skills and a track record of developing transactional talent.”

Tiras joins the firm from Locke Lord, where he was a partner and served on the executive committee and as former chair of the tax department.

“King & Spalding has a well-earned reputation for its extensive platform, collaborative focus, and top-tier talent, so the opportunity to grow how I serve my clients here was one I could not pass up,” said Tiras. “I’m excited to contribute to the growth of this team and to practice with long-time professional friends and peers whom I greatly enjoy and respect.”

Tiras is the fifth key addition to the King & Spalding team in Texas this year, following the additions of restructuring partner Michael Fishel in Houston, senior trial counsel and former U.S. district judge Lee Yeakel in Austin, trial partner Mary-Olga “Mo” Lovett in Houston, and antitrust partner Sean Royall in Houston and Washington.
