Hong Kong Office

To meet the growing business needs of our clients, Simpson Thacher has been active in Greater China, Korea and across Asia for nearly 30 years through our office in Hong Kong. The highly praised office offers one of the largest resident teams among U.S. law firms to leading Chinese and foreign companies. We advise on U.S., Hong Kong and English laws, and most of our Hong Kong lawyers are bilingual speakers of English and Mandarin Chinese, providing the necessary depth of local experience and appreciation of Chinese culture, customs and business practices.

“[Simpson Thacher] is our go-to firm because of their global reputation, history, knowledge and experience.”
