Michael Cziesla and Tim Bednall, European Senior and Managing Partners of KWM, are currently in China trying to hammer out a deal to shore up the London office.

They have been meeting with the firm's top brass after London partners were told of the levels of debt and partner departures at the firm last week, as broken by RoF.


Cziesla and Bednall are due to return next week to present a deal to the London office. Expect an announcement then. Fingers crossed they've managed to find a way forwards.

A spokeswoman for the firm declined to comment.
