Eversheds has continued to expand its Hong Kong offering with the hire of former Slaughter and May litigation partner Mark Yeadon.
Yeadon, who had worked for Slaughters for 22 years in London and Hong Kong, retired from the firm earlier this summer.
Eversheds Hong Kong managing director Nick Seddon said the firm was still in growth mode in the region, with the goal of becoming a 50-lawyer office by the end of 2011.
He added that he expects to strengthen the corporate and banking teams “in the course of the next few months”.
Yeadon, who will work alongside Hong Kong litigation chief Ivan Ng, has strong relationships with the major banks and regulators in Hong Kong.
Seddon commented: “What Yeadon brings is his specialist expertise in regulation, financial services litigation and judicial review work. He’ll add to and complement our skill set.”
Yeadon said: “Eversheds has an impressive record in dispute resolution and an innovative approach to serving clients, which will enable it to continue to develop from strength to strength.”
Slaughters, meanwhile, has moved to augment its dispute resolution offering in Hong Kong following Yeadon’s departure by relocating senior associate Mark Hughes to the jurisdiction.
