KPMG expands legal services in Asia Pacific with more than 275 lawyers from ZICO Law

KPMG International has reached an agreement with the Asian ZICO Law network under which more than 275 lawyers will join KPMG’s 2,900 legal professionals worldwide. The significant expansion of its presence in Asia Pacific underscores KPMG’s ongoing commitment to providing companies with global coverage and expertise to respond appropriately to changing business models, geopolitical factors, government and regulatory oversight, and digitization.

In the new setup, KPMG International offers legal services and solutions, as well as a globally connected platform and specialists working with leading technology providers to modernize corporate legal functions.

Stuart Fuller, Global Head of Legal Services KPMG International, praises the agreement:

“This expansion reflects KPMG professionals’ commitment to support clients as they seek to drive their businesses in times of exponential change. The need for deep, local experience coupled with global insights and technology solutions has never been greater. For the KPMG global organization, the overall agreement with the firms in the ZICO Law network increases the total number of legal professionals to close to 3,200 across 84 jurisdictions, all working to help support clients as they navigate the increasing strategic and economic importance of the Asia Pacific region.”

 

KPMG International has already expanded in Southeast Asia in recent years. In 2020, KPMG International opened a branch in Thailand with a team of 25 lawyers, and a year earlier in Indonesia. Just this September, Studio Associato (KPMG Legal Italy) added 40 lawyers to the leading Italian employment law firm LabLaw. They form the new employment law unit of KPMG Italy and will work closely with the 200 professionals of the Italian legal team.

We are looking forward to the new colleagues and would like to welcome them to the KPMG Law network. We look forward to many projects together!
