King & Wood Mallesons to open in Cambridge
King & Wood Mallesons is opening a Cambridge office that will be focused, at least initially, on real estate clients' needs.
The new office will be managed by real estate partner Simon Burson. Burson joined KWM last year as part of a nine-lawyer team, including four partners, that came from Eversheds. Burson previously was the leader of the Cambridge real estate team for Eversheds and was a member of the firm's Cambridge senior management team.
KWM was in the news recently as its chief operating officer for Europe and the Middle East, Rachel Reid, left the firm just days after the surprise announcement that managing partner William Boss would relinquish his leadership role at the firm in May this year, one year before his term's scheduled end date.
