Hill DIckinson boosts shipping in Singapore and HK
Hill Dickinson has boosted its shipping expertise with the hire of two new partners: Chris Edwards from Clyde & Co in Singapore and Anthony Woo from Kennedys in Hong Kong.
Edwards joined Clydes’ Singapore office in 1998, and was promoted to the partnership in 2007. He joins Hill Dickinson’s Singapore office as part of a team of 15 fee earners.
Woo has been a partner at Kennedys since 2010. He joins Hill Dickinson’s relatively new Hong Kong office - which launched in October 2013 - as part of a team of 10 fee-earners, which is slated for further expansion.
“Our view remains the same that Hong Kong is an established market but there is room for another marine-related firm,” said Managing Partner Peter Jackson. “So far we’ve seen positive results there. The Hong Kong office has strengthened our Asia offering and given us a degree of extra credibility to clients.”
