Michael Chik has joined Bird & Bird’s international dispute resolution practice in Hong Kong as partner, leaving Norton Rose Fulbright where he was a counsel.

Chick specialises in commercial disputes, trust and estates disputes as well as international arbitration. His arrival strengthens Bird & Bird’s dispute resolution practice after losing Richard Keady and Robert Rhoda to Dentons in December last year.

Chick is the second disputes lawyer departed Norton Rose’s Hong Kong office after Peter Glover moved to Reed Smith.
