Freshfields trades HK dispute resolution head

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer has swapped the head of its Asian dispute resolution practice with a London-based litigation specialist. Richard Chalk has headed to Hong Kong to take on the role, replacing Rajat Jindal, who returns to London after eight years in the region. The magic circle firm also reaffirmed its commitment to a presence in Vietnam after the Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City offices were thought to be vulnerable to Freshfields’ strategic review of Asia.
