Taylor Wessing launches new association in Hong Kong
Law firm Taylor Wessing has increased its intellectual property and life sciences capabilities in Asia with a new office and association with Hong Kong firm HM Chan & Co.

Taylor Wessing pinpointed IP and the life sciences as two areas where the firms will be able to offer better services, along with regulatory investigations and enforcement.

Tim Eyles, managing partner of Taylor Wessing, stated: “Given our considerable experience in supporting international businesses to develop in the Asia region ... we are well placed to support our clients to capitalise on these opportunities and Hong Kong is the natural next step for our growth.”

“This is a very exciting move for our firms and draws on our combined and recognised strengths,” added Mark Chan, managing partner of HM Chan & Co.

Chan will work with Dr Jakob Riemenschneider, partner at Taylor Wessing, to improve coverage of inbound and outbound opportunities in Asia.

Taylor Wessing also recently entered into an association with Alsulaim Alawaji & Partners a law firm in Saudi Arabia.

The newly established Hong Kong office will strengthen Taylor Wessing’s reach across Asia, joining the firm’s 33 offices internationally.
