Goodwin hires KWM investment funds head
Goodwin Procter has announced the hire of Michael Halford, former investment funds head at King & Wood Mallesons (KWM). Other KWM partners are thought to be mulling a similar move, as Goodwin Procter has confirmed it has offered positions to other KWM partners in London.
Halford was one of four top partners to leave KWM last month. In addition to recent exits, the firm’s woes include the failure of its proposed EUME bailout deal from its Chinese arm.
