Who are we?
We are King & Wood Mallesons. The top tier international law firm, from Asia, for the world.
A firm born in Asia, underpinned by world class capability. With over 2000 lawyers in 30 global locations, we draw from our Western and Eastern perspectives to deliver incisive counsel.
Our unique firm was born out of a big idea – that the world needs a firm like us. A firm that can bridge East and West and create a new standard of world-class legal services. A firm that attracts clients and talent with borderless ambitions. To become the leading top tier international law firm from Asia, for the world. Our clients need a top tier firm in the region who can match deep local understanding with a world-class platform. That's us. That's KWM.
We are driven by a simple purpose – to use our mastery of the law for the lasting prosperity of our clients, people and communities. It’s why we exist. It’s why we are KWM.
Everything we do is grounded in a set of core principles which guide the way we operate as a leading international firm – how we enable our clients to succeed; how we grow our people to be their best and how we support our communities to thrive.
We are expanding our Global Business Acceptance Team (GBAT), that manages potential engagement risks, using centralised global client, matter and third-party data, as part of the onboarding process. This means a few exciting new opportunities to join the team!
The roles will be involved in the analysis and identification of professional conduct (conflicts, confidentiality), commercial/client alignment, strategic, regulatory (AML, sanctions) and reputational risks when accepting new clients and matters.
Our points of difference?
KWM offers variety – The Risk & Compliance areas of our Business Acceptance team are not segmented, offering greater opportunities for cross-training and development across all areas of engagement risk.
A role in our Business Acceptance team offers autonomy and independence in working style, within a great team that is down to earth, approachable, hardworking and friendly.
Our compliance culture is exceptional at KWM – This is displayed by greater support by management; a large and growing team and remit; strong brand in Australia and arguably better than most.
We are looking for commercially minded professionals with a focus to enable the acceptance of new clients and matters. We want those who have a genuine enthusiasm for this space and want to grow their career with KWM.
Varying levels of seniority available.
