Two new partners have joined Reed Smith and bolstered the firm’s expertise in regulatory enforcement and litigation.

Dora Wang joined the firm as a partner in its global regulatory enforcement practice, and will be based in its Shanghai and New York offices. She is a US/UK-trained lawyer with extensive regulatory compliance and white-collar investigation experience.

She advises multinational corporations on antitrust and competition matters, cybersecurity and data privacy laws, anti-corruption/anti-bribery issues, due diligence in mergers and acquisitions, compliance audit and policy formulation and implementation, and dispute resolution matters.

Jay Yan, Reed Smith’s Shanghai office managing partner, said: “[Dora Wang] is an excellent addition to our firm and will build on our extensive regulatory capabilities in China and across the region. With particular pressure currently on Chinese and US trade relations, multinational clients require comprehensive and strategic advice on market access, disputes, regulatory compliance matters, investigations and enforcement actions.”

Mark West also recently joined Reed Smith as a partner in its litigation practice in Hong Kong. West has extensive experience in advising and representing Hong Kong-listed companies, multinational companies and high net worth individuals on a wide array of regulatory investigations, high-value and complex commercial litigation and arbitration, white collar crimes and fraud investigations, and prosecution defence.

Douglas Cameron, Reed Smith’s global chair of litigation, said: “[Mark West] is a highly respected lawyer, and his extensive experience adds further strength to our rapidly expanding disputes practice in Hong Kong. His practice covers a wide range of industry sectors, including technology, telecoms, pharmaceuticals, transportation and logistics, energy, commodities, construction and engineering.”
