Singapore’s Wong Partnership has kick-started its Chinese dispute resolution practice with the appointment of the former executive director of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre.
As first revealed on www.thelawyer.com/lawyer news last Tuesday (1 June), Ang Yong Tong joined the firm’s fledgling Shanghai office as a partner at the start of the month. He will be responsible for setting up Wong Partnership’s Chinese dispute resolution practice.
The Shanghai representative office is Wong Partner-ship’s first overseas office, and was launched last month. Yong Tong is the latest in a string of senior lawyers to have joined Wong Partnership in the past year. Last October, Choo Wai Hong, the former head of Allen & Gledhill’s fund practice, joined to spearhead the firm’s regional funds practice, which was launched with its joint venture partner Clifford Chance.
Meanwhile, in November 2003, Christopher Chuah, the head of Drew & Napier’s construction law practice, joined as a partner.
