Norton Rose boosts Asia IP with DLA swoop

Norton Rose has continued to grow its Asian footprint with the hire of two IP partners from DLA Piper’s Hong Kong office. Non-contentious IP and technology specialist Gigi Cheah and contentious and non contentious IP lawyer Justin Davidson will join the City firm’s Hong Kong practice, taking its partner headcount to 18. Asia head David Stannard said: “They [Cheah and Davidson] are exactly the kind of dynamic, highly skilled and experienced lawyers in this important specialist area we’re looking for to build and take ­forward our Hong Kong and Asia region technology practice.”
