KWM seeks merger resolution as firms lure partners away

December 15, 2016 King & Wood Mallesons hopes to finalize a merger suitor by the end of this week, amid continued discussions and negotiations. Meanwhile, several firms have begun to approach individual KWM partners with offers. DLA Piper, Mayer Brown, and Winston & Strawn are among the firms vying for KWM partners ahead of any formal merger activity.
