On behalf of Schnader, Ken is chief liaison with Jakarta-based law firm Yang & Co, now affiliated with Schnader, and provides representation to companies based in Indonesia and the United States requiring legal counsel in each country.
Megan and Ken replace Dick Kessler and Bob Collings, who stepped down from the committee after terms of 6 and 11 years, respectively. During their time as members of the executive committee, they helped usher in several new initiatives that helped pave the way for Schnader’s continued service to the practice of law and the community. The firm thanks Dick and Bob for their dedicated and unwavering service.
