We opened our Hong Kong office in 1974 and were the first London law firm to do so. In 2009 we opened our Beijing office.

We currently have 12 partners and over 70 associates, support lawyers, trainees and paralegals in our Beijing and Hong Kong offices who are engaged in a broad range of corporate, commercial, financing, dispute resolution, regulatory/investigations, real estate and antitrust work for PRC, Hong Kong, Asian and multinational clients who instruct us with their inbound and outbound investments and other projects involving China. Most of our lawyers are fluent in Mandarin and are able to draft, negotiate and advise in a dual lingual environment.

We practise English and Hong Kong law and provide US securities law capability for capital markets transactions in Hong Kong. We work with the leading PRC law firms for PRC advice, drawing on their extensive expertise and standing in the PRC legal and business communities.

The firm holds pre-eminent positions in the numerous M&A legal league tables published by Bloomberg, Mergermarket and Refinitiv and in Chambers Asia Pacific, Legal 500 Asia Pacific, and the IFLR1000 Asia Pacific.

Our partners are identified as leading legal practitioners in the legal directories, including Who's Who Legal, and their work is recognised in the annual FT Asia-Pacific Innovative Lawyers Report.
