Richards Butler has announced the appointment of six new partners, five of which are in the Hong Kong office and one in London.

The new partners’ specialist areas cover banking & finance, corporate and litigation.

Roger Parker, managing partner, declared that: “This number of partner appointments is a clear indication of the firm’s confidence for the future and our intention to continue strengthening our position in all of our growth areas.”

Last year the firm only appointed two partners in total, one each in London and Hong Kong.
