Marc-Alexandre Poirier, Formerly at Baker & McKenzie | Hong Kong

I was quite happy practicing law at Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg (Montreal) but had always wondered what it would be like working in a major business centre like Hong Kong, the financial hub of the world’s fastest growing economy. It was for this reason that I approached ZSA and sought their assistance. They were extremely helpful in finding me a position at Baker & McKenzie, Hong Kong, where I currently work. I could not have imagined how challenged I would be with the work I am currently handling, whether it is handling a multi-billion dollar capital raising exercise and acquisition for a Real-Estate Investment Trust or cross-border  M&A transactions involving assets in China and across Asia. The files are extraordinarily multi-national in dimension; the clients are extremely sophisticated; and, my colleagues are very talented. As for living in Hong Kong, my wife and I are loving every minute of it. I would strongly recommend to other lawyers that they explore their dreams of working in a true global legal centre.
