Law firm Dechert has expanded its financial services practice in Hong Kong with the addition of Michael P Wong.
Wong (pictured) joins the firm as a partner and was most recently at K&L Gates.
“We are very pleased to welcome Michael to Dechert,” says Peter Astleford, co-chair of the firm’s financial services group. “Michael has already established a noteworthy and growing practice at his previous firm for global and PRC clients. By moving to our platform, we all anticipate that Michael’s and our clients will get a more integrated and better global service than ever before.”
Wong’s practice focuses on fund formation, fund investments and retail fund registration. He covers a broad range of investment funds, including hedge, private equity, debt, real estate and venture capital. In addition, Wong has extensive experience advising on financial services regulatory matters such as licensing, compliance, marketing and distribution of financial products, disclosure of shareholding interests and market misconduct.
“With an extensive global reach and solid local expertise, Dechert’s global offering in financial services is second to none,” says Wong. “It is a great honour to join such a well-integrated team of talented and forward thinking lawyers. I am confident that my clients will benefit from the platform available here and I look forward to growing the firm's financial services practice further with my fellow partners.”
