The international law firm has already established a new business covering the UK, Europe and the Middle East to maintain core practices in London, Frankfurt, Dubai and Riyadh, with affiliated offices in Madrid, Milan and Brussels.
Wang Junfeng, KWM global chairman, said: “I am proud and excited by the determination of our partners who have worked so hard with us to realise this practice in deeply challenging circumstances.”
“This is a very good outcome for international clients and for the continued development of our firm.”
The firm’s website currently lists four intellectual property attorneys in Europe and the Middle East. KWM’s new business covering the UK, Europe and the Middle East will focus on corporate mergers and acquisitions, finance, competition and dispute resolution.
