Three years after declaring its intention to launch an office in Beijing, Proskauer Rose has finally moved in.

Proskauer announced Thursday that its 13th office, in Beijing’s Chaoyang District, officially opened for business this week. The opening completes a push begun in 2008, when the firm expanded to Hong Kong with the addition of two partners from now-defunct Heller Ehrman’s office there and the relocation of Proskauer corporate partner Yuval Tal from New York. The Hong Kong office now counts 20 lawyers, a group that Tal, a native of Israel, says feels like a “little United Nations” because the attorneys hail from throughout Asia, Europe and the United States.
