A new quartet in Hong Kong
Law firm Hill Dickinson has hired dispute resolution lawyer Jim James in Hong Kong for its international arbitration team. James has been based in Hong Kong since 1983, with time spent working in Beijing, Shanghai, South Korea and Singapore.
It is Hill Dickinson’s global strategy to build its presence in international arbitration and commercial litigation across the full range of business services, including corporate, financial services, banking, technology, construction, trade and commodities, energy and transportation.
To implement that strategy, the Hong Kong office has recently added three new disputes partners: Edward Liu (who is admitted in Mainland China, the UK and Hong Kong), Yvette Yu (formerly of Baker & McKenzie) and Richard Lyons, who was previously with King & Wood Mallesons before a period as general counsel for a major construction contractor in the Middle East.
