Hong Kong: Norton Rose Fulbright has rehired its former shipping finance lawyer Jonathan Silver in Hong Kong from Howse Williams Bowers.
"China will almost inevitably become the world's leading maritime power over the next decade," said the firm's global head of transport, Harry Theochari.
"It is already the world's largest importer as well as exporter of goods and dominates the economics of the shipping industry. Jonathan's appointment provides a dedicated shipping resource in Hong Kong and China and ensures we will maintain our market leading position for shipping globally as the industry moves east."
