Hong Kong – LAWFUEL – The Law News Network – Global law firm Clifford Chance celebrates the 25th anniversary of its Hong Kong office this year. The firm commenced operations in Hong Kong in December 1980 and has since established itself as one of the leading law firms in Hong Kong, with a reputation for advising on complex and
groundbreaking deals.

The Hong Kong office was Clifford Chance’s first in the region, established
as a result of its international banking clients becoming increasingly
active in Asia. It was initially staffed by four lawyers and has grown
considerably – there are almost 300 employees in the Hong Kong office today,
and the office serves as Clifford Chance’s regional base.

As part of the celebrations, which included a staff summer party in June,
the firm hosted a drinks reception for key clients at the new Four Seasons
Hotel yesterday. Over 200 clients joined Clifford Chance lawyers to mark
the firm’s 25th anniversary in Hong Kong.

Jim Baird, Clifford Chance’s regional managing partner for Asia, based in
Hong Kong, commented:
“The last 25 years have been groundbreaking in Hong Kong’s history, and
Clifford Chance is very proud to have played its part in that history and to
have become part of the community. We would like to thank our clients for
giving us the opportunity to realise our vision and our staff for helping us
to make it happen.”
