Herbert Smith Freehills Launches Mandarin Legal Support Hub in Shanghai

Herbert Smith Freehills has become the first Western firm with a legal services hub in China, launching a bilingual 13-lawyer team in Shanghai. HSF launches 240-lawyer legal services hub in Belfast. Herbert Smith Freehills (HSF) has extended its Belfast-headquartered alternative legal services business to China, launching a 13-lawyer legal services centre in Shanghai. The centre will consist of Mandarin and English bilingual lawyers and legal analysts who have been recruited locally and are all PRC nationals. The China launch comes less than a year after HSF piloted a similar project in Perth, Australia to focus on document review. Both the Perth "pop-up" office and the new Shanghai centre will be run from HSF's 240-lawyer global alternative legal services hub, which opened in Belfast last year. The new China hub will provide a low-cost base to process high-volume or document-intensive work and support transactional and dispute matters in Asia.
