Clyde & Co has added maritime law specialist Anthony Woo as a partner in Hong Kong from Hill Dickinson.

Woo, who was a Hill Dickinson partner since 2014, advises on charter party disputes, defending bill of lading claims, regulatory summonses, as well as claims arising from collision and salvage. His arbitration practice includes work in Hong Kong, London and Singapore, with a focus on PRC-related disputes.

Prior to Hill Dickinson, Woo worked with Kennedys, Reed Smith Richards Butler, and DLA Piper.

"We have ambitious plans for the firm both in Hong Kong and in particular the marine practice in the Asia pacific region, Anthony's appointment is a key part of that strategy," said Simon McConnell, managing partner of the Hong Kong office, in a statement.
