CMS ties up with new local firm in Hong Kong
CMS in Hong Kong has agreed to enter an association with Shirley Lau & Co., a young firm started by commercial and corporate finance partner Shirley Lau, formerly of Troutman Sanders.
Lau started her firm after Troutman’s decision to pull out of Hong Kong, following in the footsteps of firms like Fried Frank Harris Shriver & Jacobson and Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft, which retreated from the city in 2015 and 2016 respectively.
The association will be led by CMS energy finance partner Tim Elliott. The goal is to give the firm increased capability to reach local clients.
