King & Wood Mallesons partner departures mount
King & Wood Mallesons. Commercial litigation partner Elaine Whiteford is departing the firm to join Covington & Burling, where just last week disputes expert Greg Lascelles headed. Additionally, Paul Stothard, dispute resolution partner, is departing the firm to join Norton Rose Fulbright. Stothard will split time between Norton Rose's London and Middle East offices.
