Stuart FullerStuart Fuller, King & Wood Mallesons

With a clear vision of Asia as the new centre of global economic activity and the desire to build a ‘different’ type of international law firm, Hong Kong-based global managing partner of King & Wood Mallesons, Stuart Fuller, continues to be instrumental in the expansion and integration of the firm’s network, which now includes 30 offices. At the helm of the first Sino-Western international law firm combination, Fuller recently acted as point man in negotiations to merge KWM with SJ Berwin, which delivered the firm a European platform and English law capabilities. As chief executive of the Hong Kong firm, Fuller led the full local partnership integration, including a new profit pool, employee terms, IT system and internal processes. He also continues to demonstrate his penchant for leadership and innovation, with achievements that include defining the global firm’s business priorities in a changing environment and the creation of a global secondment program.
