Baker & McKenzie has appointed Paul Tan as the new managing partner of its Hong Kong, China and Vietnam offices, succeeding Poh Lee Tan, who held the position since November 2010.

Paul Tan previously held the role of managing partner of the firm’s Hong Kong, China and Vietnam offices in 1997/98. He has also previously served as vice president of the Law Society of Hong Kong and as a chair and member of various government-appointed appeal boards and advisory committees.

Lawrence Lee, chair of the firm’s Hong Kong, China and Vietnam offices said: “Poh Lee Tan’s leadership, commitment and passion has seen our offices consolidate and build on Baker & McKenzie’s position… in the Greater China and Vietnam markets.” 

The international law firm has announced several other senior appointments this month. Bruce Hambrett and Jim Holloway have been elected to serve on its executive committee, while current executive committee member Winston Zee has been elected as chair of the firm’s Asia-Pacific regional council.
