Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP’s Hong Kong office operates in association with Gregory D. Puff & Co and offers legal services and counsel to U.S. and international clients with interests in China and greater Asia.
While, historically, much of the firm’s work has been done in the United States and other industrialized economies, more and more of our clients are based in, or look to expand to, emerging markets. The BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China), among others, offer clients opportunities for development and expansion of enterprises that are shaping the economic landscape of the 21st century. Consequently, our Hong Kong office, in conjunction with our Beijing office, serves both Chinese clients seeking international representation and U.S. and international clients interested in initiating or expanding enterprises in China or elsewhere in Asia.
Akin Gump’s Hong Kong office is not only an individual entity offering vital services, it is also fully integrated into our firmwide system of cross-border, cross-practice collaboration—a reflection and conduit of the knowledge, experience and values of the firm as a whole.
Our lawyers in Hong Kong have broad and deep experience counseling Asian and other international clients in private and public mergers and acquisitions, funds formation and joint ventures. As a function of Akin Gump’s global collaborative system, however, our Hong Kong office is also a portal for regional, U.S. and international clients into a legal services network available around the clock. Consequently, Akin Gump’s Hong Kong office offers clients counsel in over 85 practices linked across its offices worldwide, while focusing on its own core strengths: pan-Asian M&A and private equity and hedge fund formation.
