Comment: This firm recommended in white collar crime returned to its core strengths and defended individuals on a large scale. But K&K has not turned its back on compliance, with advice in a series of internal investigations, partnering with other specialists as required. Hardly any other criminal law firm boasts so many years of experience in compliance. K&K is likely to profit from the fact that midsized companies are opting for smaller legal teams for such work. The overall concept’s success was reflected in several salary partner appointments.
