  • The view from HK is that this is a brave move on Malleson's part. With the best will in the world Mallesons is an ozzie firm with offices in HK, Shanghai and Beijing (oh and London). King and Wood is not an internatinal firm. So the combined firm will have offices in er, Australia, HK and the PRC (oh and London).
    I note the coded use of a "coordinated" approach to matters as they cannot integrate. So this smells like a Herbies / Gleiss + by wrapping a Verein round it. China based observers are putting this at 50/50 to succeed but when you look at the huge differences culturally, in approach, in comp structures etc, this is a very tricky "merger" to make work. Good luck to them - I hope they do it.
