Philadelphia-based international law firm Dechert has opened a Hong Kong office, focused on private equity, hedge funds and venture capital.
The office, the firm’s 17th, but first in Asia, will be headed by alternative investments specialist Basil Hwang, who joins from his own practice as a managing partner. Keith Robinson, who works in Dechert’s financial services group in Washington, D.C., is transferring to the new office, where he and Hwang will be joined by four other lawyers.
That number is expected to increase, as Dechert is still hiring. What’s more, the firm plans to open an office in Beijing or Shanghai later this year, pending regulatory approval.
In addition to its alternatives formation and investing practice, Dechert’s Hong Kong office will also focus on capital raising, cross-border mergers and acquisitions, and Asia financial investments.
