Oldham Li & Nie solicitors (OLN) and Watson & Band have established a formal alliance, expanding and strengthening both OLN’s China legal service network and Watson & Band’s international practice through direct access to lawyers so that clients can be seamlessly serviced in different jurisdictions.
With steady demand of business flow between the two jurisdictions, the association sets a solid foundation to empower Hong Kong’s OLN and mainland China’s Watson & Band to approach clients with both a domestic and global perspective.
OLN, established in Hong Kong in 1987, has expanded to a team of 40 lawyers who are admitted to one or more jurisdictions including Hong Kong, France, the UK, the US, Australia and Canada. In 2007, the firm grew its China practice by opening a branch in Shanghai to cater to an increasing demand from its China clientele.
Watson & Band is one of the top full-service law firms in China, with more than 300 professionals. Founded in 1995, the firm is headquartered in Shanghai and has offices in Beijing, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Zhengzhou, Suzhou, Harbin, Lanzhou, Yantai, Chizhou and Tokyo.
