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 more than 20 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.

“They are very knowledgeable about market trends, and they anticipate needs and problems and bring that to us in advance.”
