PRC firm JunWe picks up Latham corporate specialist in HK
JunHe has recruited corporate specialist Chris Tang from Latham & Watkins. Tang will join JunHe in Hong Kong as a partner.
Tang specializes in capital markets and M&A, representing primarily investment banks and issuers. He works in a broad range of sectors, including chemicals, construction, real estate, and energy.
JunHe’s hire from Latham is part of a recent trend of PRC law firms hiring from global firms in Hong Kong. In 2017 Haiwen & Partners hired Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton associate Max Hwa as a partner, and Zhong Lun Law Firm recruited banking partner Joe Tam as well as a team of lawyers from Mayer Brown JSM.
