‘As accounting firms boost legal offering, law firms must be proactive’ – IPBA 2015

Jeremy Lam recently spoke at a session during the annual InterPacific Bar Association’s (IPBA) meeting in Hong Kong. Asian Legal Business, a Thomson Reuters publication, featured this session in their daily conference reporting.

Jeremy was joined by Elaine Lo, Asia chair at Mayer Brown JSM, Jonathan Watmough, managing partner of RPC, Patrick Sherrington, Hogan Lovells’ Asia and Middle East regional managing partner, Simon Powell, managing partner of Latham & Watkins’ Hong Kong office.

Speakers discussed how major accounting firms are making a resurgence in Asia’s legal market. In terms of the potential threats and game changers that are out there, it is very much the accountancy firms, said Jeremy. “They have the resources, global reach, and a strong brand and reputation, and we have to be mindful of that.”

The IPBA’s 25th Annual Meeting and Conference, held in Hong Kong, ran from May 6 to May 9.
