Jones Day picks up energy pair from KWM
King & Wood Mallesons are leaving the firm to join Jones Day in Beijing. The pair joined KWM three years ago, Walker coming from now defunct Dewey & LeBoeuf and Yin coming from Linklaters.
Both Walker and Yin have practices that center on inbound and outbound China work in the energy industry. The pair join an office in Beijing as partners, where there were only three partners previously. Jones Day downsized the office in 2013 and appears to be prepared to grow it again.
