Law firm Stephenson Harwood LLP has bolstered its international private wealth practice with the arrival of Wei Kang as partner in its Hong Kong office.

“Wei’s arrival is strategically important for the development of our private wealth practice in Greater China, and across the Asia region more widely,” said Kevin Lee, partner and head of Stephenson Harwood’s private wealth practice in Greater China. “Wei brings a track record of advising clients on their tax and estate planning across a wide range of jurisdictions, and her expertise, combined with her Chinese language skills, complements our existing offering.”

Kang advises clients on international estate and asset protection planning, the Canadian tax and corporate aspects of private wealth structures, and the development of family governance structures. She has experience in a variety of cross-border deals, including the mergers and acquisitions of private corporations, corporate reorganisations and trust planning transactions. Kang joins the firm from DLA Piper.

“Strengthening our private wealth capabilities in Greater China is a key part of the firm’s ambitions in the region as we look to bolster our capabilities in Hong Kong and Shanghai,” said Jamie Stranger, Stephenson Harwood’s Greater China office managing partner. “Wei’s arrival is an important step in the growth of the practice.” 

Kang is the second partner to join Stephenson Harwood’s private wealth team in Asia in less than two months, following the arrival of Suzanne Johnston in Singapore.

The firm's award winning international private wealth team offers clients a wide range of services – including succession planning, tax planning, wealth structuring and asset protection – and acts for a number of family offices, ultra-high-net-worth individuals and trustees.
