We have a long-standing presence in Asia: we opened our Hong Kong office in 1974. Our Beijing office, which opened in September 2009, is a natural extension of our practice in the region. By combining the strength of our own offices with that of the leading law firms in the region, we are able to provide a pan-Asian legal service of the highest quality.
