Lehman, Lee & Xu Announces Immediate Hire of 200 Shanghai Attorneys

Lehman, Lee & Xu announced on Tuesday, April 29, that it will hire 200 Chinese-licensed attorneys to support the rapid expansion of its Shanghai operations.

Beijing, China, May 05, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Lehman, Lee & Xu announced on Tuesday, April 29, that it is seeking to expand its presence in Shanghai by hiring an additional 200 attorneys. The prominent Chinese-licensed law firm announced that intends to grow all of its practices, including corporate law, commercial law, intellectual property law, family law, employment law, and litigation.

“This expansion is really long overdue,” commented Scott Garner, Director of Lehman, Lee & Xu’s Shanghai Office. “We’ve been operating at our current staff level for a number of years. Our client base in Shanghai, Jiangsu and Zhejiang keeps growing and we’ve had to rely on attorneys from our Beijing, Shenzhen, and Chengdu offices. Hiring 200 attorneys is just part of our plan to support our clients’ needs in Shanghai.”

The additional staff will require a considerable investment even for one of China’s largest law firms. Betty Choy, Financial Director, commented that: “Of course, it’s quite a commitment in terms of human capital. However, the firm’s management was unanimous on the necessity of this strategic move. It wasn’t a question of ‘if’ but a question of ‘when.’”

Lehman, Lee & Xu will immediately begin accepting applications for the announced positions. Mr. Wenchang Ye, Partner, will manage all new attorney hiring.

All interested candidates are invited to contact: hr@lehmanlaw.com.
