King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) has strengthened its New York capability with the appointment of Jun Kang, a U.S. tax expert, as a partner.  The addition of Mr. Kang reflects the steady growth of the firm’s U.S. operation following the appointments of three partners last year, and together these appointments further enhance the firm’s on-the-ground offering and signify KWM’s long-term commitment to the U.S. market.  With Mr. Kang on board, KWM currently has a total of eleven partners based at its two U.S. offices in New York and Silicon Valley, practicing in the areas of banking & finance, private investment funds, M&A, private equity, corporate governance, securities and capital markets, tax, dispute resolution, and intellectual property, and serving both U.S. and international clients.  KWM’s U.S. offices have become an integral part in the firm’s effort of establishing a global platform with local expertise.

Mr. Kang brings U.S. and international tax expertise across a number of areas, ranging from cross-border investments, capital markets to private investment funds.  Prior to joining KWM, Mr. Kang was at Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP where he worked with clients including Chinese state-owned enterprises, financial institutions, private equity firms, asset managers, listed companies and high-net-worth individuals.  Mr. Kang also practiced law in China, including serving as internal legal counsel at China National Offshore Oil Corporation.

Commenting on his appointment, Mr. Kang said: “I am very much looking forward to joining KWM and playing a part in driving KWM’s growth across the U.S. market, and building the firm’s global offering and presence.” 

Also commenting on the appointment, Mr. Jack Wang, Managing Partner of KWM U.S., said: “Jun is another welcome addition to our impressive KWM U.S. team.  Our U.S.-based partners are all accomplished practitioners within their respective fields. The appointment of Jun signifies our commitment to the U.S., reflects the growth opportunities we see in this market and furthers the firm’s globalization efforts.”
