King & Wood Mallesons and SJ Berwin combined on November 1 to form the first global law firm headquartered in Asia, and with more than 2,700 lawyers in 30 locations worldwide. The merger, once again emphasizes the importance of the Asia market and close regions including Australia and Southeast Asia. In its press release the new firm claimed “The network is unrivalled in its ability to connect clients with opportunities in and out of the key Asian growth markets.”

The new entity would be known as King & Wood Mallesons in all other markets except in Europe, where it will be known as King & Wood Mallesons SJ Berwin. The new tagline for the firm seems to be “The Power of Together –Connecting Asia to the world and the world to Asia.”
