Law firm Mourant Ozannes has established a contentious restructuring and litigation practice in Hong Kong, which will cover both BVI and Cayman Islands law for its Asian clients.
Partner Shaun Folpp, who spent eight years based in Cayman Islands and the BVI, will build on the BVI and Cayman Islands litigation, restructuring and insolvency work already being undertaken by the firm across Asia.
Folpp said: "I'm looking forward to developing our litigation and insolvency practice in Hong Kong and advising on the increasingly complex and global needs of our clients. Our involvement in the dispute concerning the Ku De Ta restaurant and club is just one of the recent high profile cases we've been advising."
Hong Kong managing partner, Paul Christopher, added: "Shaun's arrival in Hong Kong supports the importance of the Asia market for the firm and the increasing success of our global litigation practice. Our ability to provide litigation advice on the ground in Hong Kong means we can continue to deliver an exceptional client service."
