Doug Wright, a partner at global law firm Holland & Knight is proud to join forces with our industry peers who share his belief that innovation is critical for business growth, and it’s vital to stay ahead of the curve. We are delighted to welcome him as part of our new executive leadership team.

Doug Wright, Partner

Doug has led the delivery of strategic counsel across some of the world’s most complex public companies. He worked alongside multiple high-profile clients over several decades, advising them on mergers and acquisitions, portfolio strategy, risk management, corporate finance, and many others. His work across numerous sectors includes financial services, software, health care, technology, media and telecommunications, e-commerce, consumer goods, energy and power, and retail. Under his guidance, more than 100 transactions were carried out representing hundreds of millions of dollars.

A valued member of both the Financial Services Committee and Technology Committee of Barrow Global Advisors, he was one of five lawyers globally to be recognized by Institutional Investor magazine six years in a row. Mr. Wright has been a leader within the FBA community including Vice President (FBA) and Managing Director of Portfolio Strategy, Corporate Finance, and Transactions. He holds 1 M.B.A., LL. M., and B.S from Princeton University. He also earned a Master of Law degree in Business Administration from Harvard College and completed a Certificate in Public Policy and Government from Georgetown University through the Kennedy School of Government.

After graduating from Columbia, where he studied under Alan Greenspan, he went on to attend Harvard’s Summer School programs on Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship. During the last four years, Mr. Wright worked on several groundbreaking research initiatives and co-authored two academic papers.

He founded K&W Capital Partners based out of Boston with two other partners. As Chairman of the Board of Directors, he oversaw day-to-day operations and strategic and capital markets functions, while continuing to focus on growing these strategies and expanding into new areas including IPOs, special situations, and bankruptcy. Since then, we have grown to $1 billion in revenue and create value for all our clients, but our success and longevity will depend upon how well-equipped the company remains to support future challenges.

In this role, Mr. Wright will continue to play a key role in leading not only the daily operation of the office but also lead strategic and operational decisions across the entire firm. Our ability to do so much is due to how closely our relationships are. When you marry people like Doug and Peter, there’s no reason to think otherwise. Together they bring such great talent, skills, and knowledge to the table. And together, I can’t wait to see what the next chapter in our stories will hold.
