King Wood & Mallesons sends out scary texts to tardy staff
10 August 2012
It has been reported that King Wood & Mallesons' lawyers in China are receive an accusatory text message demanding to know their whereabouts if they are not in work by 9:00am.
Not content with pretending to be involved in fictitious high-tech deals
, newly merged King & Wood Mallesons is putting technology to work in real life. According to a Lawyer report
, KWM staff must clock into work by 9am and those who are not through the revolving doors by 9:01am will receive an automated, passive-aggressive text message informing them that "it is the firm's requirement to start working at 9am. If you have a valid reason please contact the HR department
". Scary stuff.

But being treated like school children is apparently going down rather badly with lawyers who slog away into the small hours, elbows deep in due diligence, only to be chastised for arriving at work a couple of minutes late.
King & Wood Mallesons declined to comment.
