Big Four firm EY expands in Hong Kong

Kareena Teh, a former senior partner at Dechert, has joined EY’s Hong Kong member firm, LC Lawyers, along with two other associates, as the Big Four accounting firm expands its legal presence in the Asian hub.

Teh and the associates, Mok Ho-yin and Philip Kwok, focus on general corporate and commercial disputes, as well as regulatory and compliance matters and governance. Kwok joins LC Lawyers as counsel.

Teh, who spent five years at Dechert, earlier had an 11-year stint at Baker McKenzie, leaving as a partner. She previously worked as a barrister and solicitor in Christchurch, New Zealand.Back in May, LC Lawyers hired Rossana Chu from Troutman Sanders, after the U.S.-headquartered office exited Asia.

The Big Four accounting firms have been pushing into Asia in recent years, unsettling the market with their high-profile hires and quick expansion.
