Dear friends and readers,

On 1 March, King & Wood, the leading Chinese law firm, brings together with the premium Australia law firm, Mallesons Stephen Jaques, to set up the largest international legal network in Asia Pacific region. The firm will be operated under the name of King & Wood Mallesons (金杜律师事务所).

It is an exciting moment for us as it will be the first international legal network bringing together a leading Chinese and Western law firm with 1,800 lawyers and 21 offices globally. It will be the first major legal service provider that is headquartered outside the US and UK. We want to bring our vision, skill and unparalleled understanding of PRC law practice as well as rich experience in cross-border transactions to our client’s business and assist our clients to navigate its opportunities and its challenges.

Our blog will continue to provide articles and insights on the developments of the Chinese laws, and with stronger view from an international perspective. We wish you enjoy browsing our blogs and welcome any comments.

Kind regards,

King & Wood Mallesons金杜律师事务所
