"The 'King & Wood' part of our KWM name was decided upon many moons ago by our partners in China when they started out the firm. The reason for selecting 'King & Wood' was not because we had founding partners with those names, rather, it was because the partners had the foresight that to attract more business in the West, some classic names such as 'King & Wood' would be more accessible for potential foreign clients. A smart move!"
