The Hong Kong branch of international shipping and commodity trade law firm Helmsman LLC has moved to a new office location in Lippo Centre and is planning for further expansion of the local legal team, learns Singapore bunkering publication Manifold Times.
“Our new location is a strategic move for Helmsman to be in the city-centre of Hong Kong, within walking distance from the High Court of Hong Kong,” says Tang Chong Jun, Managing Partner of Tang & Co. (in association with Helmsman LLC) and Executive Director of Helmsman LLC.
“We are leveraging on the premium location to expand our services and to support valued clients in the growing areas of insolvency, fraud recovery and shareholders’ disputes. This is in addition to our existing shipping and commodities practice.
“Being in one of the world’s most vibrant cities and with the revitalising economy, we are seeing a potential expansion of the services we can offer. We look forward to serving the wider business community in both Hong Kong and Greater China.”
The new address of Helmsman LLC’s Hong Kong branch is as follows:
Room 4209, Tower 1, Lippo Centre,
89 Queensway, Admiralty, Hong Kong
Helmsman, present in both Hong Kong and Singapore, was founded by two shipping and commodity trading law specialists. The firm routinely acts for clients in high value commercial transactions and disputes across the world – in particular Asia and Europe.
Recently in April, the legal firm announced the appointment of Lynette Koh as Director where she will be leading the Corporate and Finance Practice.
Earlier in the year, thought leader Ian Teo (Managing Director, Helmsman LLC) and Chen Zhida (Associate Director, Helmsman LLC) shared real life case studies at a ‘Masterclass’ on commodity trading contracts at the SMU Law Academy to a full house.
