Lovells managing partner David Harris said in a statement: “ We are sorry that Colin is leaving but we have a very successful corporate team in Hong Kong and China and will continue to grow and develop the Asia corporate practice.”
He added: “We are pleased with the progress, which we have made over the last few years and are confident that we have a solid foundation from which to build.”
Law has a broad corporate practice covering international capital markets, cross border M&A and inbound investments. He has advised leading investment banks and corporates on international equity and debt offerings and listings on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
