Reed Smith continued expanding in China with the addition of a Beijing office of recently merged Dewey & LeBoeuf. The firm will get two partners and what it calls an additional "team of attorneys and legal professionals" including partners Sharon J. Mann and Hugh T. Scogin Jr. The acquisition follows Reed Smith's Jan. 1 merger with Richards Butler Hong Kong, which gave the firm 110 lawyers and a license to practice in Beijing. The firm also recently snagged Greenberg Traurig shareholder Jinshu Zhang in L.A.
