Jeffrey Lee says:
“We are perfectly placed to service the ever-growing Asian private wealth markets, and I’m excited to be part of the growth story of our Hong Kong office.
“My practice builds upon our portfolio of services that we, as one of the leading private wealth firms, must offer to the ultra-high net worth individuals and families in Hong Kong and Asia.”
Tom Shaw, Resident Partner in the Charles Russell Speechlys Hong Kong office, says:
“We are delighted with Jeffrey’s relocation to the Hong Kong office. He is a very accomplished lawyer and a great colleague.
“As a frequent visitor to the office and the region this is a natural progression for Jeffrey and his practice, and it will be a real pleasure to have him as a member of the team here in Hong Kong. His addition to the office reflects our ambition to expand from our position as a leading provider of legal services in the private wealth sector in Europe and the Middle East to become one of the preeminent firms for private wealth work in Hong Kong and the region.
“We are building from the great platform we have in Hong Kong in association with Jonathan Mok Legal, specialising in family and private client advisory services, led by the highly-regarded Jonathan Mok.”
Jonathan Mok says:
“We are already working with Jeffrey on a number of Asian projects and having him in the Hong Kong office will facilitate our collaboration and help our growth. He has an extensive network of contacts in the region and I’m looking forward to working even more closely with him to grow our practice at an even faster pace over the next few years.”
Jeffrey’s promotion and relocation to the Charles Russell Speechlys Hong Kong office follows the recruitment of Elaine Sum as Counsel in September 2018.
