LeBoeuf, Lamb, Greene & MacRae LLP has announced the expansion of its Asia practice with the opening of a Hong Kong office. The office is co-managed by partners William C. Marcoux and Daniel Liew.
The new office will operate in exclusive affiliation with Arthur Marriott & Associates, a Hong Kong law firm. A team of twenty lawyers will be in place by the end of 2007 practicing US, English, and Hong Kong laws and will focus on energy, insurance, corporate and finance, and dispute resolution matters.
“The explosive growth and economic globalization in the Pan-Asian market makes this the perfect time for LeBoeuf Lamb to continue expanding its footprint,” said firm Chairman Steven H. Davis. “Daniel’s leadership and market knowledge will be great assets as we expand on the success of our first office in Asia located in Beijing.”
Prior to joining LeBoeuf Lamb as a managing partner, Liew was head of the energy and infrastructure practice in Asia for an international law firm and an elected member of the partnership board of such firm. He represents clients in the energy, electricity, utilities, water, telecommunications, infrastructure, and insurance sectors, and regularly advises on mergers and acquisitions, project development, project finance and corporate finance.
