Ogier has expanded the reach of its dispute resolution practice into Hong Kong to serve Asian clients in their own time zone. The Hong Kong dispute resolution practice will work closely with the wider dispute resolution team across British Virgin Islands (BVI), the Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey.
The practice is headed up by partner Ray Ng, who has relocated from the BVI to Hong Kong. Ng has an established name in the market and a roster of clients in the region that includes financial institutions and high-net-worth individuals.
According to the firm, Ng’s move to Hong Kong is a direct response to increasing client demand for on-the-ground access to BVI-acquired litigation experience and Mandarin language skills.
Ng has been appearing regularly for more than four years in the BVI courts and is the most senior Mandarin-speaking BVI litigator in Asia.
