Asia Pacific Desk
Lewis Silkin’s Asia Pacific Desk in the UK works seamlessly with the Firm’s regional office in Hong Kong to support clients based in the Asia Pacific region with their UK and European legal requirements as well as supporting business’ legal needs in Asia Pacific.
The Asia Pacific Desk is led by Andrew Wanambwa, a Hong Kong qualified commercial litigation partner who spent 3 years based in Hong Kong.

The Firm’s immigration lawyers regularly act for both Asia Pacific companies and individuals on their immigration issues.
The Firm’s regional office in Hong Kong is headed by Employment partner Kathryn Weaver. The Firm works closely in APAC with leading regional firms many of which are fellow members of the Ius Laboris Alliance.
