Ian Childs appointed commercial litigation practice group leader in Hong Kong


Law firm Stephenson Harwood LLP has appointed partner Ian Childs as the practice group leader of the commercial litigation practice in Hong Kong, effective 1 May 2023.

Ian, who succeeds partner Ivan Ng, is a dispute resolution specialist with particular interest in complicated civil, regulatory and criminal litigation.

Focusing on the financial sector, Ian's practice is focused on contentious regulatory issues, including investigating allegations of wrongdoing and defending those subject to investigation, disciplinary action and/or prosecution by their regulators.

Stephenson Harwood's commercial litigation practice in Hong Kong advises on the full range of contentious matters, including corporate, finance, insolvency and restructuring and trust matters.

The team regularly acts for domestic and international banking clients, multi-national corporations, blue-chip companies, major insurance and reinsurance clients, commodity trading companies and high-net-worth individuals. With its association with Wei Tu, a PRC law firm in Guangzhou, the team is well placed in providing a one-stop service on Hong Kong, English and PRC law advice.
