This is a great time to join King & Wood Mallesons who were recently crowned International Law Firm of the year at the 2012 Lawyer awards, proving that their recent tie-up has received the market's seal of approval. Not only are they positioned in the fastest growing region in the world but it has also created a differentiated international law firm with a new and exciting brand. Their brand is bold and they are rightly seen as a global market 'trailblazer'.
The business development and marketing team is headed up by Murray Prior who is considered by many to be one of the best in the market. Murray started his career with Mallesons in Sydney before moving to the UK with Allen & Overy where he headed up the Banking, Tax and Real Estate practice. After only 15 months in this role he was offered the opportunity to Head up the Asia and Middle East business in Hong Kong. In 2009 he was tempted back to Mallesons to their number one business development and marketing role and has maintained this position within the newly merged firm. His team has some fantastically talented people and they are well resourced.
To understand just why their offering is a bit different, read their own words below;
You have an important voice in the "winning work" debate. Partners want your opinion, you are a professional in your own right and therefore, in our firm, you shape and influence the conversation. You are here to be heard and to drive - not to be seen. The Business Development team has an important role to play directly with clients. Whether it be facilitating introductions, connecting people with opportunities or seeking client feedback – it is just part of your job.
We are smaller than some of the White Shoe and Magic Circle Firms which means that we can move fast. At King & Wood Mallesons all systems are in place. A client report does not take 2 weeks of intensive manual labour to pull it all together. Our systems and processes allow us to do the job we are paid for – to get out and help our partners win work and retain clients.
Last but not least the culture in our firm is different. There are no elephants in the room. It's about building trust by being open, straightforward and candid with each other and our clients. We call it the 'power of together'.
