Mayer Brown is one of a few regional law firms that offers a comprehensive training & development programme. These courses are delivered by in-house or external specialists for all employees. All courses are held in our in-house conference centre. The courses "track" your professional and personal development by delivering training as and when you need it. We provide you with opportunities to enhance your technical, management and know-how skills. In addition, we sponsor employees to attend external seminars. The Law Society of Hong Kong has accredited Mayer Brown as a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) course provider, and therefore, our lawyers can meet their CPD requirements just a short walk from their desks.

7. Is Mayer Brown China focussed?

One of Mayer Brown's special focus areas is Greater China. We established our presence and confirmed the commitment to our practice in China with the opening of our Shanghai office in 1893. This office operated until the end of World War II. In the early 1980s we re-established our China practice and in 1994 formalised our China practice group. In May 2002, we expanded our presence in China with the opening of Beijing office.
