Malcolm Kemp and Yeeling Wan, former partners of Stephenson Harwood, have established a boutique firm in Hong Kong called M.B. Kemp that specialises in dispute resolution and insolvency work.

Kemp is a litigator with more than 40 years of experience, who was until recently the head of the dispute resolution practice at Stephenson Harwood’s Hong Kong office, as well as its senior partner for Greater China. He joined the firm in 1989.

Meanwhile, Wan specialises in insolvency, general commercial litigation, and contentious employment cases. She had been with Stephenson Harwood since 1998, becoming a partner in 2009.

The firm also has a director of legal affairs, Guijun “GJ” Wang, who specialises in marine and international trade. Wang spent 24 years at Stephenson Harwood prior to joining MB Kemp, and was most recently a legal director at his former firm.
