Hong Kong law firm Georgiou Payne Stewien (GPS) has hired disputes lawyer Kareena Teh as a partner from EY member firm LC Lawyers.

With more than three decades of experience, Teh advises corporations and governments on commercial litigation, corporate governance, legal and regulatory compliance and investigations, and represents clients before major courts, including the High Court, Court of Appeal and Court of Final Appeal of Hong Kong.

In 2013, she was one of the first solicitors in Hong Kong, and the only woman at that time, to be granted the right to advocate for clients in civil trials and appeals at all levels of Hong Kong's judicial system.

Teh joined LC Lawyers in 2018 from Dechert, where she was a senior partner. Prior to that, she was at Baker McKenzie and New Zealand firms Durham Chambers and Young Hunter.

With this addition, GPS now has five partners. The firm was set up in 2017 by former partners of Baker Botts and Addleshaw Goddard.
