King & Wood Mallesons

10 January 2017

Asia Pacific is the jewel in the crown of King & Wood Mallesons’ competition practice – the firm is the strongest international law firm in the region. While the firm’s legacy arm in the West, SJ Berwin, had a relatively quiet year, the firm was as strong as ever in the East, and sports a pair of market-leading practices in China and Australia. In 2016, the firm suffered the loss of London competition partners Elaine Whiteford and Philipp Girardet to Covington & Burling and Willkie Farr & Gallagher respectively, amongst a wider exodus of senior lawyers across several practice areas. But the individuals making up the remainder of the London team are well regarded around the market.
