KWM launches ‘KWM Deutschland’ LLP

According to Companies House records, King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) registered a limited liability partnership called ‘KWM Deutschland’ on December 12. The spinoff will operate alongside the firm’s other European offices, but KWM has not confirmed how many legacy SJ Berwin partners will work within the new division. The new LLP lists its officers as Tim Bednall, who currently serves as KWM’s managing partner, and Michael Cziesla, who serves as senior partner. The new LLP is launching amid a time of turbulence for KWM, which is set to move into administration on January 16 following a number of failed bailout and merger attempts.
