Relationship with King & Wood Mallesons LLP

KWM Frankfurt is not to be confused with and is an entirely different entity to King & Wood Mallesons LLP which went into administration on January 17th, 2017 and subsequently changed its name to “QSP Residual Recoveries LLP” (the “Old LLP”).

Under the transfer agreement regarding the acquisition of certain assets from the Old LLP, it was agreed that KWM Frankfurt has not assumed any responsibility for Old LLP, and is not obliged to assume, pay, satisfy, discharge, perform or fulfil, any amounts owing or obligations of the Old LLP, whether or not invoiced and whether or not due and payable to creditors and all other actual or contingent liabilities and obligations of the Old LLP of whatever nature (including tax), whether or not arising in respect of or relating to the carrying on of the business or the performance of obligations or liabilities under any contracts relating to the business or the ownership or use of any of the assets of the Old LLP, or the supply of services provided in the course of the business or otherwise whatsoever in relation to the period on or before January 17th, 2017.

KWM Frankfurt has taken a transfer of certain archived files of the Old LLP that have not been transferred to third party law firms. Should you wish to retrieve or access such files, then please contact Stephan Schmidt in the first instance.
