Hong Kong Students - Meet Our Trainees and Former Trainees

Charis Ma, First Year Trainee

“The lively team culture and collegiate atmosphere in the Hong Kong office is one of the aspects which drew me to begin my legal career at Akin Gump.  From the first day, I have worked closely with the associates and partners on a variety of challenging and extremely interesting multijurisdictional transactions.  Most of the work that the Hong Kong office handles requires collaboration with other departments from within the office, as well as Akin Gump’s international offices and foreign counsel, thus there are often great opportunities to gain inter-departmental as well as international exposure.  Trainees at Akin Gump have frequent contact with partners and senior lawyers and sitting with experienced practitioners has given me first-hand experience of the importance of being flexible, intellectual and respectful when solving complex legal issues for our clients.”
