Chinese firm Zhong Lun nabs London partner
Zhong Lun has hired corporate lawyer Tom Fairley in its London office, making him the first Western partner in the firm’s London partnership.
Fairley joins the firm from British firm Taylor Vinters. Before Taylor Vinters, he worked with Norton Rose in Shanghai and Linklaters in Shanghai, Hong Kong and London.
"We are very pleased to have someone of Tom’s unique qualifications join our team in London. Working together with our existing team of senior Chinese-trained, English-qualified lawyers in our London office, Tom will bring an important complementary set of skills which will assist us as we expand upon our existing cooperation relationships with top independent law firms in London on the full range of China-related projects in the UK and Europe,” said Xue Haibin, managing partner of Zhong Lun’s London office.
