Panamanian law firm PMA opens shop in Hong Kong

Panamanian law firm PMA opens shop in Hong Kong

Hong Kong: Panamanian law firm Patton, Moreno & Asvat recently launched operations in Hong Kong under the name PMA Global Limited. "The main reason that motivated us to have physical presence in Asia is the aim to be closer to our Asian based clients," resident lawyer Aymard Jimenez told Seatrade Asia Online.

"We believe that being here will enable us to provide our services in a more timely manner as we are able to tackle their requests reducing the waiting time for the western hemisphere offices to response. Also, it may allow us to have a better sense of how the Asian markets move and the style of work our Asian clients prefer," he added.

Although Jimenez will be the only Panamanian lawyer based in this city initially, the company is evaluating the need for a larger presence in the Asian shipping hub.  [08/06/09]
