Chinese firm King & Wood hires top disputes partner Jeff Lane

King & Wood, the largest top-tier firm in the People’s Republic of China (‘PRC’), has hired top disputes partner Jeff Lane from Hong Kong boutique Gall & Lane (now known as Gall). A partner at Zhong Lun highlighted the importance of recruiting experienced senior partners, saying: "In the past, PRC firms simply didn't have the manpower or expertise to play a lead role in cross-border transactions. But today this is no longer the case. Some PRC firms have hired lawyers and partners with seniority and desirable know-how from international firms, acquiring the same things which give advantages to international firms in cross-border transactions."
