King & Wood Mallesons has been named as one of the world’s most highly regarded mergers and acquisitions (M&A) practices by Who’s Who Legal for 2013.
Reflecting on King & Wood Mallesons M&A practice, Who’s Who Legal noted that the ‘unification of King & Wood with Mallesons Stephen Jaques in March 2012 has created a powerful international firm that has an enviable reach across the Asia-Pacific region’.
Who’s Who Legal specifically identified eight partners from the firm’s China practice and four from the firm’s Australian practice as stand-out performers in the global M&A market.
King & Wood Mallesons’ M&A practice has been involved in a number of high-profile transactions, including Glencore’s acquisition of Viterra, Cathay Fortune Corporation and China-Africa Development Fund’s combined off-market takeover of Discovery Metals and Xstrata’s all-share merger with Glencore.
