Camerons poaches second HK partner from Denton Hall

Cameron McKenna is dealing another blow to Denton Hall's Hong Kong office by taking another partner.

Last week, The Lawyer revealed that Cameron McKenna has taken the head of Denton Hall's Hong office, Christopher Clarke, to lead its Asian operation.

He will be followed by Janine Canham, who joined Denton Hall's corporate and commercial department in Hong Kong five years ago, becoming a partner last year.

Cameron McKenna's managing partner Robert Derry-Evans says: “We are delighted to have made two major announcements regarding our Hong Kong office in as many weeks. However, it is only part of the story.

“We have already started to reap the rewards of the investments we have made in other parts of the world, such as central and eastern Europe and North America.”

Julian Ogley, head of the firm's Hong Kong corporate practice, says: “Janine is building a significant profile in the Hong Kong business community and we are very much looking forward to her arrival. She has diverse experience and will be a particularly welcome addition.”
