Our People

Our global offices allow us to bring together the right team of U.S. litigators, English barristers and solicitors (including three Queen's Counsel), Hong Kong solicitors, and offshore attorneys equipped to handle the unique issues inherent in complex cross-border disputes and investigations. Our team of lawyers includes former U.S. federal and state prosecutors, English and offshore judges, and arbitrators. In addition, the lawyers at the firm are a diverse group of professionals with local experience and various language capabilities who are qualified to practice in several courts in the United States, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, and leading offshore jurisdictions, including the British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands.

The firm also has a team of legal analysts who work closely with the lawyers and, under their supervision, provide research and analysis for every stage of a matter. The analysts maintain detailed, updated knowledge of current litigation and market trends to deliver efficient and effective case support for our clients.

In addition, the lawyers are supported by an executive team of technology, eDiscovery, case management, and public relations professionals, to provide clients with practical business solutions that complement the legal strategy. Through our executive team we offer consulting services for matter management, process development and controls, IT security, staffing, budgeting, and crisis management.
