Yang & Yang Solicitors, the Hong Kong association firm of the PRC's East & Concord, has hired veteran corporate lawyer Rossana Chu as a partner. Chu was previously the managing partner of LC Lawyers, EY’s Hong Kong law firm, which closed recently.

 

With more than 25 years of practice experience, Chu specializes in Hong Kong and cross-border M&A, including takeovers and privatizations of listed companies, cross-border transactions, asset management, ESG and sustainability, financings of acquisitions and restructuring-related deals, capital markets, corporate finance, technology law, regulatory compliance, and employment legal issues. She joined LC Lawyers in 2018 from U.S. law firm Troutman Sanders, which also closed its Asia offices at that point.

Yang & Yang spun off last year from Deloitte Legal's Hong Kong law firm Yang, Chan & Jamison (now Chan & Jamison). The firm's five other partners all joined from there: Managing partner Victor Yang was previously that firm’s managing partner; Valarie Fung Wing Yin was the APAC disputes head, Winnie Chiu Wing Ngar was a partner; and Chiang Kin Fung and Sam Wu Ming Sum were associates.

Additionally, Yang was previously the managing partner of the Hong Kong office of the PRC’s Zhong Lun Law Firm, which he launched in 2015, as well as managing and founding partner of local firm Boughton Peterson Yang Anderson.

East & Concord recently confirmed its association with Yang & Yang and is currently looking forward to expanding further in the Greater Bay Area. Last year, East & Concord hired Melissa Kaye Pang, a former president of the Law Society of Hong Kong, as a part of that effort.
