K&L Gates nabs KWM team to open German office

July 18, 2016 K&L Gates is opening its third German office in Munich, Germany after poaching a three-lawyer team from King & Wood Mallesons.

The team comprises investment management partner Hilger von Livonius, counsel Philipp Riedl and Michael Harris. Von Livonius has focused on investment fund and debt capital markets as a specialist in banking, investment and insurance regulatory issues.

K&L Gates is seeking to build upon its investment management practice, but will also introduce more of its practice areas in the Munich office, including corporate, IT, and IP litigation.
