Hong Kong’s attractiveness as the regional legal hub has seen another global law group establishing offices there this month.

New York headquartered Pillsbury, which already has offices in Tokyo, Shanghai and Beijing, has enhanced its APAC offering with a new office in Hong Kong’s Central district.

Recent addition to the firm Paul Jebely will lead the new office, which will initially focus on Transportation Finance. Jebely will serve as managing partner and will be joined by Finance Associates Luca Denora, Zara Machado and Sharon Nourani.

One of the Leading Aviation Finance Lawyers

«Our opening in Hong Kong is an important step in continuing to build our presence in Asia,» said Jim Rishwain, Pillsbury Chairman.

Jebely, who worked in Hong Kong prior to joining Pillsbury earlier this year, is recognized as one of the leading aviation finance lawyers in Asia and Africa, having advised clients on commercial and corporate aircraft transactions worth billions of dollars.
