Salans closes Hong Kong office to focus on Shanghai

Salans has closed its Hong Kong office weeks after pulling out of Beijing as it shifts the focus of its China practice onto Shanghai. Salans has closed its Hong Kong, just one month after closing its Beijing base. The firm has indicated that is pursuing a strategy of focussing its resources on Shanghai. The firm signed a new cooperation agreement with its local firm Pang & Co, with which it has had an association since launching in Hong Kong in April 2009, under which Salans will refer Hong Kong law work to Pang & Co. A firm spokesperson said: “Salans will continue servicing clients’ Hong Kong legal matters through co-operation with Pang & Co, which has been working with us closely for three years,” adding: “Pang & Co will refer international law related work to us. After the transition, there won’t be much actual difference in terms of client service experience.
