Hong Kong

Hong Kong, a key international business hub, is the latest addition to the worldwide CMS locations. Opened in September 2016, the Hong Kong office is the anchor point for companies from Germany and Europe (including Russia) with business interests in China and the South-East Asia/Pacific region. Equally, Chinese and Asian firms operating abroad, or intending to do so, will find the right advisors at CMS in Hong Kong. Particularly noteworthy is the role of Hong Kong as a centre for international arbitration and dispute resolution, in addition to international business transactions. Accordingly, our team in Hong Kong advises primarily on international arbitration and alternative dispute resolution and on corporate/M&A matters.

The team of experienced lawyers awaiting you in Hong Kong has been supporting clients locally in international arbitration proceedings and advising on their business operations in the region for many years. What sets our practice in Hong Kong apart is that CMS is the first major law firm with roots in civil law to become established in Hong Kong, a traditional common law jurisdiction. Chinese, European, Russian and Asian clients alike can thus all rely on CMS for insightful advice. Our services are tailored to the local requirements in Hong Kong and also to the needs of international clients by CMS lawyers who have been trained in both legal cultures.

Please do not hesitate to contact our lawyers in Hong Kong – we will be glad to answer your questions.
