INTERNATIONAL FIRM Fulbright & Jaworski is also making moves in Asia, opening a new office in Beijing following more than 16 years in Hong Kong.

“Our China-related practice has grown rapidly during the past several years,” Steven Pfeiffer, chair of the firm’s executive committee, said.

“As one of the pre-eminent international law firms in the areas of energy, project finance, cross-border transactions and disputes, our firm's new office in Beijing is a natural step for us.”

According to the firm, Fulbright was among the first international firms to work in China.

Jeffrey Blount will serve as chief representative and partner-in-charge of the Beijing office. Blount is co-head of the firm’s international department, having worked in the Hong Kong office since the early 1990s, where he will also remain as partner-in-charge.

“China continues to be among the most dynamic and important markets for many of our global clients,” Blount said.

“Our firm's long history of cross-border practice in and involving China enables us to provide excellent service and support to our many clients who are building and expanding their businesses in China.

“We also have been fortunate to represent some of China's major emerging multinational companies as they expand their businesses globally. Our new office in Beijing will enhance our practice globally.”
