Camerons quits Beijing and shrinks Hong Kong

CMS Cameron McKenna has abandoned its fledgling four-associate Beijing practice and drastically culled its Hong Kong office. The move will result in the loss of 40 lawyers. Hong Kong, which will be run by partner Tim Ingham, is to operate as an insurance boutique. Camerons will continue to service clients in China through the Shanghai office of its French ally firm Bureau Francis Lefebvre. First revealed on 13 January
