Patrick Sherrington relocates to Hogan Lovells' Hong Kong practice
Hogan Lovells’ new regional managing partner for Asia and the Middle East, Patrick Sherrington, has relocated to Hong Kong.
Sherrington was reportedly instrumental in developing the firm’s Hong Kong office following its establishment, leading the litigation and arbitration practice in Hong Kong from 1987 until 1996. For the past decade, he has been the co-head of Hogan Lovells’ global litigation and arbitration practice. With effect from 1 May 2013, he became the firm’s regional managing partner for Asia and the Middle East.
He will maintain an active practice in Hong Kong, led by partners Allan Leung, Timothy Hill, Mark Lin, Damon So and Chris Dobby.
Sherrington is admitted in Hong Kong and is a former vice-president of the Law Society of Hong Kong. He has a High Court advocacy licence in England and he has appeared before the European Court of Justice (ECJ) in Luxembourg.
