Bird & Bird boosts Asian offices with five new partners

By 

03-2012

As part of a strategic drive to expand our client service offering in the Asia-Pacific region, we are delighted to welcome five new partners to our offices in Asia. Four join us from other firms and one has been appointed internally.

We first entered the Asian market with an office in Hong Kong in 1995 and have since entered Shanghai, Beijing and Singapore*. These new appointments bring the total number of partners in the region to 26.

Our five new partners are all highly experienced in cross-border and domestic matters, and those based in our China offices have particular expertise in assisting international clients to navigate the complexities of China’s business, judicial and regulatory environment.

David Kerr, CEO commented: “We are very pleased to welcome Xia, John, Lorraine, Catherine and Marcus to the partnership. Our new partners all bring a wealth of experience in working with international clients as well as detailed understanding of the local regulatory environment. We look forward to working with them as we continue to develop our presence in Asia, as our existing and potential clients’ needs in the region increase.”

* Our presence in Singapore is through a global association agreement with ATMD Bird & Bird LLP
