PARTNER PICKUPS PICK UP -  Partner hires have been increasing across Asia, most notably in Beijing, Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo, International’s Jessica Seah reports. Earlier this month, International broke the news about veteran intellectual property lawyer Gordon Gao moving from elite Chinese law firm Fangda Partners to King & Wood Mallesons. In addition, King & Wood also hired three of Gao’s team of lawyers as partners—Sherry Yao, Zhang Xuting and Cassidy Guo. All three are experts in IP litigation and are based in Beijing. Meanwhile, Japanese law firm Atsumi & Sakai has added three partners to its Tokyo office: Haruki Ito, Mitsuru Misawa and Kazuki Ishihara. In Hong Kong, local firm Howse Williams has hired property lawyer Jovanne Zee as a partner. She joins from the Hong Kong office of U.K. firm Charles Russell Speechlys, where she was a senior associate. Elsewhere in Asia, British firm Hill Dickinson has expanded in Singapore with the hires of Matthew Dow as partner and Binoy Dubey as counsel. Dow and Dubey join from Norwegian firm Wikborg Rein and Singapore firm Incisive Law, respectively.
