Eric Chow & Co, an association firm by Commerce & Finance Law Offices, has hired Christy Leung as a partner in its litigation department.
Leung focuses on contentious regulatory matters and complex commercial disputes in the financial services sector. Her work involves legal claims under the Securities and Futures Ordinance, the codes and guidelines administered by Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) and Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA), the Hong Kong Listing Rules and allegations related to anti-money laundering.
PRC banks, financial institutions and listed companies are among those advised by Leung on regulatory proceedings brought by the SFC, HKEX, HKMA and other regulatory and law enforcement agencies.
Leung was a partner at Winston & Strawn, which received practice of corporate compliance honours in the China Business Law Journal 2020 Awards. This helped affirm Leung’s relocation prospects and further consolidated recognition of Winston & Strawn’s compliance expertise.
