Job Description

An award-winning offshore law firm is hiring a corporate partner to join their highly respected corporate team in Hong Kong. Targeting primarily the China market (inbound and outbound business), you’ll be developing new and existing relationships with both corporate clients and financial/legal intermediaries, and directly servicing such business. This role would be suitable for an ambitious corporate lawyer seeking a supportive and collaborative platform to grow their practice.

To qualify, candidates should be common law qualified (other than Hong Kong) senior corporate lawyers, either at a leading offshore law firm or international onshore law firm, ideally at partner or of counsel level. Senior associates with an exceptional business network could also be considered. Candidates who are senior PRC qualified lawyers could also be considered for this role.

This role would be well suited to someone experienced with working in or on the mainland market, ideally with a mix of capital markets and M&A experience, and has the ability to communicate with and understand the needs of domestic Chinese businesses. A high priority for this role is given to qualified candidates who are native Mandarin speakers.
