Baker McKenzie has hired virtual assets and investment funds lawyer Joy Lam as a partner in its financial services practice in Hong Kong. Lam joined from Sidley Austin, where she was a partner for four years in Hong Kong.

Lam advises clients on virtual asset funds, tokenised offerings, and the development of infrastructure that support the virtual assets ecosystem. She has acted on several groundbreaking transactions, including advising on Asia’s first open-ended and close-ended tokenised fund and securing the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission’s first approval for a virtual assets fund.

Lam is a founding committee member of the Asia Security Token Alliance. She is a regular speaker at conferences, including those organised by Hong Kong’s first regulated crypto exchange OSL. Subscription
