KWM said that the new partners “bring a variety of private practice, in-house, and commercial experience from multiple jurisdictions”.

“Some have international experience and have previously worked in-house, while others have managed their own businesses, highlighting diverse pathways to partnership at KWM”, the firm explained. “Many of the newly appointed partners specialise in practices and sectors that align with the firm's key growth areas and address increasing client demand across Asia, including private capital, restructuring and insolvency, energy transition, infrastructure projects, and data and technology”.

The partners will officially step into their new roles on 1 July.

“Our nine new partners have demonstrated strong leadership qualities and I look forward to seeing them play an active role in progressing the firm’s strategy; reinforcing our culture and deepening their relationships with our clients”, CEP Australia Renae Lattey said.
