K2 is well positioned to engage as a trusted partner with clients to deliver IT services, elevate the customer support experience and accelerate the integration of technology with the practice of law,” said, Peter Cotseones.
As a result, Christopher Petrini-Poli and Nicholas Quil, who currently serve as executive chairman and chief executive officer respectively, will transition to a board capacity with K2.
