Mayer Brown’s Asian arm, Mayer Brown JSM, is dropping the iconic JSM part of its firm name in English, marking the end of a 128-year-old history of one of Hong Kong’s oldest and best-known law firm brands.

The change, which is confined only to the firm’s brand name in English, will take effect on 1 September. The firm will continue to be known as Master Law Firm (孖士打律師行) in Chinese after the legacy Hong Kong firm Johnson Stokes & Master.
