Our legal team on-the-ground in Hong Kong now comprises over 150 lawyers including 35 partners, 9 Counsel/Consultants, a new total of 30* Senior Associates.
David Bateson, Co-Partner in Charge, Hong Kong said: “The appointments are significant following the full merger of King & Wood and Mallesons Stephen Jaques in March of this year. They reflect the depth of talent across our core areas of practice and position us to best service the breadth and diversity of our client base both on-the-ground in Hong Kong and throughout the Asian region. We are delighted that these lawyers have been recognised for their excellent work and ongoing commitment to delivering real value for clients.”
Simon Yung, Co-Partner in Charge, Hong Kong said: “We are proud to be investing in our Hong Kong team with a growing number of senior lawyers, many of whom are dual qualified and bilingual – skills that are increasingly essential to best service both our Chinese and foreign clients.”
