James Rogers Moves to Hong Kong
To coincide with Richard Hill’s return to London, James Rogers has recently moved to the Firm’s Hong Kong office from where he will work alongside Richard in continuing to develop Fulbright’s arbitration and disputes capabilities in Asia, servicing clients from offices in Hong Kong and Beijing.
Recently described as “fantastically responsive” by The Legal 500 UK 2011, James has almost 10 years experience as an international arbitration practitioner, having worked with another leading international arbitration practice in London and Tokyo before joining Fulbright’s London location in 2008.
Working with the Firm’s International Arbitration and Construction Practice Groups, James advises clients on the avoidance and resolution of disputes across a number of industry sectors, including the energy, power and construction sectors. He has represented clients in arbitrations arising from construction, commercial, technology, licensing, M&A and joint venture disputes in the Americas, Africa, Europe, Russia and the CIS, the Middle East and Asia conducted under the rules of many of the major international arbitration institutions.
From 1 November 2011, our Hong Kong and Beijing arbitration team will be further enhanced by the addition of Matthew Townsend. Matthew, whose practice will also focus on China-related arbitration and disputes matters, is an English qualified associate fluent in Mandarin Chinese. He is Co-founder and Director of the China Britain Law Institute, a trustee at London Chinese Radio and, prior to joining Fulbright, worked as a disputes lawyer in London and Beijing.
