Hong Kong-based law firm King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) has appointed new leading cross-border Dispute Resolution partner Amanda Lees to its Singapore office, as part of its continuous expansion in Southeast Asia.

Lees has about a decade of valuable experience working within the region, with Simmons & Simmons JWS as well as Ashurst. An expert in international arbitration, Lees specialises in commercial and investment treaty arbitration as well as other complex cross-border litigation.
