Reed Smith has snatched two partners and other legal professionals from the former Beijing office of Dewey Ballantine, now Dewey & LeBoeuf. Joining Reed Smith as partner is Sharon J. Mann, former senior director of the Trade Facilitation Office at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing. Mann advises on Chinese investment, capital markets and trade issues. Hugh T. Scogin Jr., a corporate partner, focuses on investment and other corporate transactions, mergers and acquisitions and dispute resolution. He has more than two decades of experience advising clients on Chinese business matters. Michael H. Dardzinski, who handles mergers and acquisitions, dispute resolution and other transactions, joins as counsel. Several other lawyers and professionals will also join the team. “Bringing this group to Reed Smith is a unique opportunity for the firm to move forward quickly with our planned expansion in China,” Gregory B. Jordan, Reed Smith’s global managing partner, said in a news release. “We are already seeing a significant number of requests from clients for services in China in the areas of acquisitions, joint ventures and other types of investments in China. Having Hugh, Sharon and their team on board will be a huge benefit to our clients doing business there.” Reed Smith officially began operating in Asia in January, following a merger with Richards Butler Hong Kong. Firmwide, Reed Smith has more than 1,600 lawyers in 23 offices.
