Salans appoints Berlin partner to lead Shanghai as partner duo quit office
Salans has appointed a new Shanghai managing partner ahead of the departure of local chief Bernd-Uwe Stucken and fellow corporate partner Wei Liu, after the pair resigned last week, leaving the base with no partners. The exits of the duo, who are subject to a six-month notice period, will leave the office with 13 lawyers and 23 support staff. The news follows the closure of Salans’ Beijing and Hong Kong offices earlier this year, with the international firm saying it would focus its China practice in Shanghai.
