Gall beefs up litigation team in Hong Kong
Gall has given its Hong Kong office a serious boost with the hire of dispute resolution partner Michael Withington, employment partner Jennifer Van Dale and registered foreign lawyer Caroline McNally.
Withington joins the firm from the partnership at Herbert Smith Freehills, bringing specialist knowledge in commercial litigation matters, including employment and shareholder disputes. Van Dale joins from Baker & McKenzie, where she headed the firm’s Hong Kong employment group, and McNally joins as the head of Gall’s new matrimonial practice, leaving behind the partnership at Farrer & Co.
The new hires take Gall’s Hong Kong headcount to 17 lawyers.
