Former co-heads of the construction, infrastructure and projects team at MinterEllison’s Hong Kong office, Steven Yip and Malcolm Chin, have brought a team of five lawyers to join Holman Fenwick Willan (HFW).

Yip and Chin are now partners at HFW, while their team comprises senior associates Yvonne Lau, Charles Cheung and Brian Liu, and associates Nicole Leung and Suki Fung.

Yip focuses on cross-border dispute matters within the construction sector and has represented clients in international arbitrations in Hong Kong, the mainland, Dubai and Singapore. He has been involved in construction projects, including major facilities, power plants, rail and other transportation infrastructure.

In China Business Law Journal’s A-List for 2023-24, Yip was selected as one of the Growth Drivers among international law firm lawyers.

Chin specialises more in construction litigation, particularly disputes over complex commercial contracts and large-scale construction and engineering projects involving commercial and residential buildings, mining, transportation, manufacturing and power plants. He has also advised on international arbitration proceedings in the mainland, Dubai, Hong Kong, France, Singapore, Switzerland and the US.

Michael Sergeant, HFW’s global head of construction, said the firm’s construction team had doubled in size in the past two years and hoped its growth would continue.

Currently, HFW’s construction team comprises 16 partners and more than 90 lawyers worldwide.

The UK-based firm has been strategically expanding in the Asia-Pacific region since last year. It opened its Shenzhen office in June 2023 and, five months later, snatched 15 professionals from MinterEllison, including four partners based in Australia and one in China.
