King & Wood Mallesons has recruited partners in New York and Tokyo as the Sino-Australian legal giant continues to expand globally.
The firm has brought on former Cahill Gordon & Reindel counsel Jun Kang as a partner for its tax group in New York, while picking up corporate partner Ryunosuke Ushijima from Miyake, Ushijima & Imamura, a Tokyo-based firm where he was a name partner.
King & Wood Mallesons has also relocated disputes partner Patric McGonigal to Tokio, who joined the firm earlier this year in Singapore after having previously worked at UK firm Hill Dickinson in London.
Ushijima handles cross-border transactions, disputes and antitrust matters. He first joined his former firm in 1997 and made partner in 2002. Last year, Ushijima became a name partner at what is now Miyake & Partners, a name the firm officially adopted in July.
