Mayer Brown today welcomes Loretta Chan as Consultant to its Corporate Services Department. Loretta comes with over twenty years of experience advising on corporate and commercial law both in private practice and as in-house counsel. Her areas of focus span from corporate secretarial practice, listed company compliance, and corporate finance, to financial services matters. She is also familiar with rules enforced by regulators such as the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and the Securities and Futures Commission.

“I would like to welcome Loretta to our Corporate Services Department,” said Patrick Wong, supervising partner of the department and Head of Corporate Finance in Asia. “Her wealth of experience as well as her depth of knowledge of company law and listed company compliance practice will further strengthen the capabilities of our Corporate Services Department before the new Companies Ordinance becomes effective in 2014.”
