Baker McKenzie has recently shaken up its regional leadership with the appointment of Michael Wong as Asia-Pacific chair and Loo Shih Yann as the new member of its global executive committee. Both serve as Asia-Pacific representatives on the firm’s most senior leadership team.

Wong’s appointment puts him in charge of setting regional strategy for 17 offices in the Asia-Pacific region. Loo, meanwhile, has played a key role in implementing the firm’s China strategy, including the establishment of the Baker McKenzie FenXun (FTZ) joint operation office in 2015.

Steering a firm with an extensive global and regional presences during global uncertainty is not an easy task. Wong has seen clients going through tough challenges, with some barely surviving the pandemic, while others are actually thriving. Overall, he expects the Asia-Pacific legal landscape to stay on course.

“Asia-Pacific is probably turning the corner, and likely to come out of the pandemic first among all the regions in the world,” he told Asia Business Law Journal. “And with that, we are confident that we can grow with our clients, and look at the opportunities for growth.”
