Following in the footsteps of firms like Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati and Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher this year, Nixon Peabody has planted its own flag in Hong Kong.

The firm has inked an affiliation with Hong Kong law firm Cheng Wong Lam & Partners and will be sharing its office space, said San Francisco Nixon partner David Cheng, who also serves as the firm’s head of the China and Asia Pacific practice.
