WongPartnership targets arbitration with key hire

Singapore’s WongPartnership is kick-starting its Chinese dispute resolution practice with the appointment of the former executive director of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre.

Ang Yong Tong will join the firm’s fledgling Shanghai office as a partner today (1 June) and will be responsible for setting up Wong Partnership’s Chinese dispute resolution practice.

WongPartnership launched a representative office in Shanghai last month, the firm’s first overseas office.
