HONG KONG

Seamless service in Asia with the launch of Nixon Peabody CWL in Hong Kong.

On October 1, 2015, we combined our office in Hong Kong with leading Asian business firm CWL Partners. This combination dramatically expands Nixon Peabody’s presence in Asia with more than 30 lawyers and legal professionals in one of the world’s most dynamic economic centers. The combined firm will now be known as Nixon Peabody CWL in Hong Kong. We have been formally associated with each other since 2010. In addition to advising on a full spectrum of Hong Kong legal issues, this office is a hub for clients throughout the Asia-Pacific region including mainland China, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, Japan, Korea, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.

Our presence in Hong Kong allows us to provide seamless legal service to clients whether in the Pacific Rim or around the world. We represent Hong Kong and international clients, including public companies, private enterprises, PRC businesses, private equity, venture capital, hedge funds, investment banks, entrepreneurs, high-net-worth individuals and company directors. We provide a broad range of legal solutions and advise clients on, among other things, inbound and outbound M&A and investment transactions, Hong Kong IPOs and corporate finance, intellectual property, investment fund formation, media and entertainment matters and legal disputes.

Note: Nixon Peabody CWL is a solicitors’ firm in the form of a Hong Kong general partnership, registered with the Law Society of Hong Kong and is legally distinct and independent from Nixon Peabody LLP, a limited liability partnership organized under the laws of New York, USA, and its subsidiaries, associated, affiliated and related entities bearing the name of “Nixon Peabody” or “NP” as part or whole of its name, in the rest of the world.
