Having been established in Greater China for more than 40 years, Stephenson Harwood is an international law firm which has been in Greater China longer than most such firms. Established in 1979, Stephenson Harwood’s Hong Kong office was the first of the firm’s Greater China offices. However, the firm has a long history of acting as a gateway between East and West, starting in 1867 when one of the firm’s founders William Harwood opened an office in Shanghai. The firm was one of the first UK firms to open in Hong Kong and then mainland China (PRC), where we have now an office in Shanghai.
