Asia has been at the heart of the firm’s international strategy for more than 30 years beginning with the opening of our Hong Kong office in 1983.

We were one of the first few foreign law firms approved by the Chinese Ministry of Justice to establish a representative office in the Mainland, and did so in Guangzhou in 1993 followed by Shanghai in 2002 and Beijing in 2007.
