When CHRISTOPHER STEPHENS took a position in the Hong Kong office of now-defunct Coudert Brothers in 1996, he and his wife thought their move abroad would be temporary. "We didn’t hang curtains for the first four years," says Stephens, who has been in Asia ever since. The recently appointed general counsel of Manila’s Asian Development Bank (ADB) now calls the continent home. "Our children were born here, the best legal work in the world is here, it’s a fascinating and invigorating place to live," says Stephens, "and we’ve put down roots."
