Yau and Herbert have joint responsibility for the North Asia private banking business while Philip Wong has been appointed China Market Head, North Asia, HSBC Private Bank.

On the legal front corporate partner Joseph Lee has left Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft’s Hong Kong office to rejoin UK firm Simmons & Simmons, where he had worked for seven years until 2007.
