Yang & Yang Solicitors, PRC law firm East & Concord Partners’ Hong Kong association firm, has added M&A expert Dennis Yeung as a partner from the Beijing office of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, which closed recently.

At the end of last year, Akin Gump announced the closure of its four-lawyer Beijing office. Office managing partner Allen Shyu moved to the firm’s Hong Kong office, while partner Jingli Jiang relocated to Washington, DC.

Yeung has more than 20 years of experience, focusing on M&A, securities and public listings, private equity, regulatory compliance, and corporate & commercial matters.

“Dennis will bring a wealth of experience to our firm. At the same time, he will work closely with our strategic partner, East & Concord Partners, to further develop legal practices with clients in Mainland China,” said Yang & Yang in a statement.

Yang & Yang now has 10 lawyers in Hong Kong, including eight partners. Earlier this year, the firm hired Rossana Chu, the former managing partner of EY’s now-shuttered legal arm in Hong Kong, LC Lawyers, and announced its association with East & Concord.
