Holman Fenwick Willan has hired Locke Lord’s entire Hong Kong team, leaving questions about the future of the Texas firm’s office in the Asian financial center.

A total of nine lawyers and paralegals, including partner Matthew Wong and of counsel King Hui and Roger Wong, are making the move. They follow former Locke Lord Hong Kong office managing partner Wing Cheung, who joined Holman Fenwick earlier this month with a trainee and paralegal.
