Pinsent Masons boosts Shanghai practice with 25 Salans hires

September 12, 2012 Pinsent Masons has bolstered its Shanghai practice with the hire of 13 lawyers and 12 support staff from Salans. The hires follow the June hire of Salans’ Shanghai managing partner Bernd-Uwe Stucken and fellow Shanghai corporate partner Wei Liu.

The new recruits will take the number of staff in Pinsent Masons’ Shanghai office to 50, and add real estate, tax and competition expertise to the firm’s offering in China.

Pinsent Masons managing partner David Ryan said: “This news marks another important step in the development of our Chinese practice. There are strong links between Shanghai, our Munich office and our German desk in London, especially given the strength of manufacturing in Germany and the importance of both Germany and Shanghai to our advanced manufacturing and technology services sector. The arrival of the team also coincides with the firm’s launch in Paris (31 August 2012), strengthening our ability to support European clients across Asia.”
