Professional Biography

Mr. Kyei is an associate in Baker Donelson's Atlanta office and a member of the Corporate Group.

Mr. Kyei's corporate work experience spans several industries, including education, technology, software, renewable energy, data privacy, health care, banking, and finance. Before joining the Firm, he worked in-house in Ghana for the University of Ghana spearheading the contract division of the university's legal department. While pursuing his U.S. J.D. degree, he had corporate internships with a Fortune 50 telecommunication company and a software testing company in the Atlanta metropolitan area.

His practice focuses on mergers and acquisitions, cross-border transactions, corporate formation, governance, maintenance, contract review, management, and negotiations. Since joining the Firm in 2022, Mr. Kyei has assisted in reviewing software licensing agreements for a leading global health care company, analyzed and managed the operation and maintenance (O&M) service contracts of a global O&M services provider for renewable energy assets, and assisted in revising the standard power purchasing agreement of one of U.S. largest electric utility companies to meet current, best, and competitive practices or standards. In addition, as a member of the Firm's Cross-Border Transaction group, he has worked collaboratively with attorneys in different offices on complex cross-border merger and acquisition transactions. In his general corporate practice, he assists foreign companies seeking to establish a presence in the U.S. with their corporate formation. He also guides and helps domestic U.S. companies to comply with their respective incorporation states' annual corporate registrations and filings.

As a passionate advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion, Mr. Kyei always looks for opportunities to offer pro bono legal services to Georgia non-profit organizations by helping review their corporate formation and governance documents to ensure they are up-to-date and compliant with the Georgia Non-Profit Code. For example, a few months after joining the Firm, he helped a Georgia non-profit organization, formed to promote female-focused education for children to alleviate poverty in Burkina Faso, West Africa, and revised their corporate governance documents to reflect its structural and operational changes.
