Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy
Hong Kong is a high-energy, fast-paced, world-class financial center. Located at the tip of Southeastern China, the City is home to an ancient and rich culture, with natural splendors and spectacular physical attractions. Archeological finds reveal that Hong Kong was settled during the seventh century and envisioned from its inception as an ideal point of trade. Today, Hong Kong is China's primary gateway to the world.
Milbank's Hong Kong office has been operating since 1978 and is an integral part of our Asian practice.

We are active in industries that include power, telecommunications and other infrastructures.
