Dechert boosts litigation practice in Hong Kong

Maria Sit

Dechert recently added to its global litigation group with the hire of Maria Sit as a partner in its Hong Kong office. Sit is experienced in advising on regulatory investigations and enforcement, as well as complex civil litigation and arbitration, and has previously served as an in-house counsel at the Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong.

“Maria will be a key addition to our global disputes practice allowing us to meet growing client demand for disputes services across Asia,” said Dechert’s Hong Kong office head, David Cho. “Her experience across complex litigation, arbitration as well as government enforcement and investigations enhances the firm’s offering in the region.”
