Slaughter and May considers adding US expertise in Hong Kong
Slaughter and May is considering whether to add US law capability across multiple jurisdictions - including its Hong Kong base - according to an inside source that spoke with The Lawyer.
The Slaughter and May insider said: “The firm is considering all things, including possibly hiring US-qualified lawyers in Hong Kong and elsewhere. But no decision is made yet and we are still in the process of reviewing our strategy.”
Another source added: “The strategic review is triggered by the significant changes in the market. In the past year, a number of US firms have moved on to take on Hong Kong law capabilities. They are looking at what they should be doing to provide better services to our clients in the changed environment.”
