Man, who will join the firm's Beijing office on Monday, marks the sixth partner Orrick has added to its China offices in as many months.
Orrick Asia managing partner Christopher Stephens said the addition of Man is in response to the continued strength of the country’s business sector.
"Government policies and the continued growth of the private sector have contributed to a booming business environment in China," he said. "Thomas's addition further enhances our profile in China and strengthens our ability to service foreign companies doing business in China and Chinese companies seeking to do transactions globally."
Man, who is a Chinese native, will focus on representing foreign companies in foreign direct investments, M&A transactions and real estate investment in China.
As part of his past experience Man was appointed to the Supreme People's Court of People’s Republic of China as one of two foreign advisers to the drafting committee of China's Institute of Evidence Law and Forensic Science. The committee drafted the first uniform rules of evidence that are used in all Chinese courts.
Man is also adjunct professor of law at the China University of Political Science and Law in Beijing.
