CMS Germany has welcomed back partner Mariel Dimsey from her recent role as secretary-general of the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC), while Eric Ng, HKIAC’s deputy secretary-general, has also left to join Hong Kong-based Prince’s Chambers as a barrister.

Dimsey has replaced partner Nicolas Wiegand as head of the firm’s Hong Kong office, while serving as co-head of the CMS international arbitration group.

“We are excited to welcome Mariel back to CMS, where she will play a key role in leading our Hong Kong office and contributing to the growth of our international arbitration practice,” said Wiegand.

In 2022, Dimsey, then a partner at CMS Hong Kong and co-head of the firm’s international arbitration group, succeeded Sarah Grimmer as secretary-general of the HKIAC.

Before joining CMS in 2018, Dimsey, an Australian lawyer and Hong Kong solicitor, had practised at the associate level at Hogan Lovells and Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton. As an international commercial and investment arbitration lawyer, she has acted as an adviser and an advocate in many international arbitrations with her expertise covering disputes involving Chinese parties.

Hong Kong-qualified barrister Ng was promoted to replace Joe Liu as deputy secretary-general from managing counsel at the HKIAC in 2022. Before joining the HKIAC in 2019, Ng had practised as a barrister at Gilt Chambers in Hong Kong for more than five years.

Being in the civil litigation and arbitration practice, Ng focuses on international commercial and investor-state arbitration and has acted as both counsel and tribunal secretary in international commercial and investor-state arbitrations.
