A&O considers job cuts in Hong Kong review
Allen & Overy (A&O) is restructuring its Hong Kong office, with a number of lawyers at risk of redundancy. The firm is in discussions with staff about potential job cuts, but it is also considering options including short and long-term secondments to other offices. A&O refused to be drawn on how many positions are under threat but confirmed that it is reviewing the office in the wake of the departure of a seven-partner corporate team, including Asia corporate chief Michael Liu and China group head Kenneth Chan, to Latham & Watkins last year.
