Hong Kong law firm K&L Gates has added Michael Wong as a partner in the investment management, hedge funds and alternative investments practice. 

Wong joins the firm from Allen & Overy LLP.

Concentrating his practice on investment management and financial regulation, Wong has extensive experience advising fund managers and financial institutions on the structuring, establishment, and distribution of a broad range of fund products, including hedge, alternative investment, and SFC-authorized funds, as well as counseling on a wide variety of other financial regulatory areas, including licensing and registration of financial intermediaries, managed accounts, custody arrangements, disclosure of interests, insider dealing, and outsourcing. Wong’s recent notable transactions include his representation of a Chinese financial institution on the listing of the first RQFII “open-ended” fund on the Cayman Islands Stock Exchange.

“We are excited that Michael has joined us,” says David KY Tang, K&L Gates’ Managing Partner, Asia. “He adds depth and breadth in the Asia Pacific region to our leading firmwide investment management and financial regulatory practices.”

Wong says: “I am delighted to be joining one of the largest and most experienced investment management groups globally. Joining a firm with the global reach that K&L Gates offers — and, in particular, its significant Asia Pacific presence — will be a great benefit to my clients undertaking cross-border transactions.”
