Troutman Sanders has hired a litigation partner in Hong Kong.
Qualified in the U.K, Hong Kong, and Australia, Ronald Sum focuses on disputes in the insurance, maritime, transportation, and logistics sectors. He joins the firm from the Hong Kong office of Blank Rome, where he was partner.
Sum joined Blank Rome last year from the Hong Kong office of Eversheds, where had been a partner since 2009. Prior to that, he was a Hong Kong partner with DLA Piper.
Sum’s joining will give Atlanta-based Troutman Sanders six partners and 15 associates in Hong Kong, where the firm opened its office in 1997.
