William F. McGovern Recognized Again as Leading Anti-Corruption Lawyer by Chambers Asia-Pacific

February 18, 2014

For the second year in a row, William McGovern, from Kobre & Kim’s Hong Kong office, was ranked among the leading practitioners for his work in Dispute Resolution: Anticorruption in the 2014 edition of Chambers Asia-Pacific.

In addition to Mr. McGovern being regarded as a first choice referral candidate, the guide pointed out that his peers consider him a lawyer who “knows his stuff, but is also approachable, pragmatic and friendly” with a source noting that, “if my firm was in the same market, he's the man we'd want."

A former U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) enforcement lawyer who led the opening of Kobre & Kim’s Hong Kong office in 2010, Mr. McGovern has used his extensive prior government experience to help establish the firm as the premier litigation boutique for institutional and private clients facing international government investigations, often involving securities law violations, antitrust, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), money laundering, corporate accounting fraud, and various other laws with international applications.
