Law firm Campbells has opened an office in Hong Kong, which will be headed up by Ross McDonough, the former managing partner and head of litigation in the firm’s Cayman office.
Having practiced continuously with Campbells since 1994, McDonough has appeared in more than 40 reported cases in the Grand Court, the Court of Appeal and the Privy Council. He has also been admitted in the British Virgin Islands since 2009. He specialises in insolvency, restructuring and commercial litigation, with a particular expertise in investment fund disputes.
In Cayman, McDonough is replaced by new managing partner John Wolf who has been head of corporate since 2007. Cayman partner Alan Craig takes over from Wolf as head of corporate, while McDonough is replaced as head of litigation, insolvency & restructuring by Guy Manning.
“We are delighted to announce the opening of our Hong Kong office. Clients in the region will now have direct access in their own time zone to our Cayman Islands and BVI legal services, including corporate, finance, insolvency and restructuring, insurance, investment funds, litigation and trusts,” the company said.
McDonough added: “The opening of an office in Hong Kong is in response to demand from our clients in the Asia-Pacific region following several years of exceptional growth.”
