SPECIALIST technology firm Bird & Bird is to move its two Hong Kong-based lawyers into the offices of Hong Kong law firm Robertson Double & Lee.
Bird & Bird will now pass Hong Kong work to Robertsons, and Robertsons will pass UK communications and technology law to Bird & Bird.
Bird & Bird business development partner David Kerr said the firm always intended to form an association with a Hong Kong firm. "It is easier to look around for the right firm when you are there," he said.
Robertsons has 23 lawyers in three Hong Kong offices and associations throughout China.
Bird & Bird Hong Kong partner Vivien Crook said she hoped the Chinese associations would be particularly useful.
