Simmons rebuilds Hong Kong team

• Simmons & Simmons Hong Kong has hired technology, media and telecoms (TMT) partner Damien Bailey from Minter Ellison, where he headed the Chinese TMT practice.

Simmons has been bulking up its Hong Kong presence since losing five partners to Fried Frank Harris Shriver & Jacobson in 2006. The firm hired corporate star AlanWong from Stephenson Harwood & Lo in December last year.

Bailey is a solicitor and barrister of the Supreme Court of Australia and a solicitor in Hong Kong.
