Carey Olsen opens Hong Kong office

Carey Olsen has opened an office in Hong Kong as part of the continued expansion of its network in Asia.

The Hong Kong practice has a dispute resolution and insolvency focus and follows the successful launch of the firm's Singapore office in October last year. 

Carey Olsen's Hong Kong office will advise on the full spectrum of contentious, semi-contentious and offshore advisory work. This includes domestic and international restructuring and insolvency, corporate and commercial disputes, banking and financial services litigation, trusts litigation as well as fraud and asset tracing and regulatory disputes.

Global managing partner, Alex Ohlsson said: "The growth in demand for offshore legal services in Asia has created a parallel demand for offshore litigation services and we have an increasing number of clients requiring advice in relation to disputes and insolvency matters in the region. Our Hong Kong office provides clients and referrers with access to offshore dispute resolution and insolvency specialists who are in the same time zone and who have a thorough understanding of the Asia market.

"The provision of offshore dispute resolution and insolvency services in Hong Kong complements our corporate, finance and investment funds offering in Singapore and begins the next chapter of Carey Olsen's Asia story. Hong Kong is a thriving business centre and we look forward to extending our footprint in Asia and to building on Carey Olsen's success in the region."
