UK Investment Support Directory bolstered with addition of Asia’s Top Tier International Law Firm

King & Wood Mallesons London looks forward to providing more businesses market-leading cross border investment and trade advice, following its addition to the UK Investment Support Directory. 

Launched in 2019, the Directory is a new online tool which will help international investors set up and expand their operations in the UK. 

The Directory will allow potential investors to search for support from experts across industries, regions, business experience and language expertise. Investors will then be provided an opportunity to have a free hour-long consultation to discuss their specific business needs. 

KWM London Managing Partner, Mark Schaub said: 

“We’re thrilled to be listed on the UK Investment Support Directory. London is the international city globally. We look forward to supporting ever increasing numbers of Asia-Pacific clients to successfully enter the UK market.” Headquartered in Hong Kong, with a deep history and strong relationships across China and Australia, KWM London is often a first port of call for Asian Pacific companies looking at the UK market. 

Our geographic footprint and network are incredibly useful to our clients. We can often be the trusted advisor rather than being limited to the role of lawyer,” Mark Schaub (who has been working on cross border deals with China since 1993) added.

The OECD recently published figures that identified the UK as the leading destination for foreign direct investment in Europe, and the third most significant in the world, behind the US and China.

Cross-border M&A specialist and Former KWM Australia Chairman, Stephen Minns said:

“The recently announced UK-Australia free trade deal is a promising indication of what lies ahead for London as a re-invigorated trade hub, built relationship by relationship. It is particularly exciting to see a firm future focus with digital trade included. We expect to see a rise in interest in the UK from Australian clients and our team in London is well positioned to provide advice.”

Last year, the UK trade relationship with Australia was worth £13.9 billion and under the new deal, the trade relationship is expected to grow significantly.  

The Department for International Trade (DIT) secures UK and global prosperity by promoting and financing international trade and investment, and championing free trade. To visit the directory, click here: https://www.great.gov.uk/international/investment-support-directory/
