March 26, 2018
On the heels of a recent launch in Shanghai, Kobre & Kim has been named a top international firm in the areas of dispute resolution and anti-bribery & compliance at the China Business Law Awards.
“The Kobre & Kim non-conflict model is unique, and allows them to work symbiotically alongside other firms who represent corporations under investigation,” a client told the editorial team of China Business Law Journal, which presents the awards. Vasu Muthyala’s experience as a U.S. Department of Justice prosecutor “gives him a superb insight in criminal and regulatory defense,” a client said of the Hong Kong-based lawyer.
Kobre & Kim’s Asia investigations team includes several former U.S. government prosecutors and investigators based permanently based in Asia who represent clients operating in China in responding to U.S. government inquiries and enforcement actions. Among it’s recent matters, the firm advised an interested party on certain international aspects of a regulatory investigation conducted by the Ministry of Commerce into McDonald’s Corporation’s sale of its mainland China and Hong Kong operations for US $2 billion+.
“They have a qualified and diverse team, as well as one of the more niche anti-bribery and anti-corruption compliance and investigations teams in China,” a client told the publication, who lauded Shaun Wu as “an experienced compliance lawyer with rich China and cross-border experience.”
