Watson Farley sets up Vietnam association and plans China move
Watson Farley & Williams has set up an association and co-operation agreement with four-lawyer Hanoi boutique LVN & Associates.
LVN previously had a relationship with Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe. The founder of LVN, energy specialist Linh Quynh Doan, used to work at Orrick's Hong Kong office and set up LVN five years ago. Splitting her time between Hanoi and Hong Kong, she became counsel to Watson Farley in Hong Kong four months ago.
Watson Farley says that it will focus on the areas of energy, natural resources and transport in Vietnam. Co-managing partner Chris Lowe said: 'It is a small and neat offering to give us specifically capability in the energy and natural resources sector, and also gives us the maritime and aviation capability.'
