New Lawyers Join Harney's Hong Kong Office

The British Virgin Islands-based offshore law firm Harneys Corporate Services Limited, providing administration services to the BVI corporations, has increased the number of lawyers in its HK office, as a part of ongoing expansion of its Asian practice.

The hire of the three new lawyers brought to eight the number of lawyers in the firm's Hong Kong office. Cheng Cheng Tan joined the BVI firm from Rahmat Lim & Partners, where she was a partner. Her spheres are banking and finance as well as corporate and commercial law, with a focus on securities listings, joint ventures and cross-border mergers and acquisitions. Kane Guo, who joined Harneys from another leading international offshore law firm, specializes in M&A, FDI and banking. Kane's practice areas include corporate and commercial, investment funds and private equity. The third lawyer, Zhao Feifei, practices banking and finance, corporate and commercial law.

The head of Harneys' Hong Kong office, Paul Law, welcomed the new hires to the office, saying that the new lawyers “will add both onshore and offshore experience and regional perspectives to the team.”
