Overview

Kirkland’s first location in Asia, our Hong Kong office opened in 2006 to offer clients a full-service practice in the region. Our team has since grown to nearly 115 lawyers who provide sophisticated and commercial advice on cross-border M&A, private equity, capital markets and financing transactions; handle complex restructurings, workouts and defaults; and guide clients through high-stakes litigation, investigations and government enforcement matters. Attorneys in all of these practices have a deep familiarity with the local market, and also leverage the experience of colleagues from across Kirkland’s international offices.
