NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 26, 2012) - Continuing the expansion of its global disputes practice, King & Spalding has added partners Henry G. ("Harry") Burnett and James E. Berger in its New York office.

Burnett said, "King & Spalding has one of the top international arbitration practices in the world. I look forward to working with the firm's outstanding lawyers."
