Norton Rose Hong Kong, the international legal practice, today announced that Camille Jojo will be joining the practice in Hong Kong as Head of the Hong Kong Dispute Resolution team. Camille will join from Barlow Lyde & Gilbert (BLG) in Hong Kong, where he has been the managing partner of the Hong Kong office.

Camille has been a litigation partner in Hong Kong for over 20 years. He has run the BLG Hong Kong office from 1995 to date. He has broad experience of corporate and commercial disputes, extending to family company/shareholder disputes, insolvency and probate disputes.

Camille Jojo commented:

“I look forward to leading the dispute resolution team in Hong Kong. Norton Rose has a strong reputation in the Asia Pacific region and I was particularly drawn by the strength of the practice’s established clients, panel appointments and international platform.”

David Stannard, Managing Partner, Hong Kong and Asia, commented:

“Camille Jojo joining marks an important development in the continued growth of our Asia Pacific practice. Strategically our capabilities across all our offices in Asia are of increasing importance to our clients. We have strong corporate finance and banking practices in Hong Kong and with the addition of Camille Jojo our dispute resolution team is significantly enhanced.”

Global Head of Dispute Resolution, Antony Dutton commented:

“We are very pleased to welcome Camille to our dispute resolution team. In the current economic climate it is an important time for dispute resolution and our objective is to continue to grow our dispute resolution practice in Hong Kong and across all our offices. Camille will be a strong driver in the development of our dispute resolution team. He is by any measure, a very experienced litigator, manager and team builder. Our dispute resolution capabilities have also been strengthened by the promotion of Ruth Cowley to partnership on 1 May 2009. Both appointments consolidate our longstanding commitment to the Asian region.”
