Allen & Overy Bolsters Asia Regulatory Offering with Appointment of Charlotte Robins as Partner in Hong Kong

Allen & Overy announces the appointment of Charlotte Robins as a partner in its regulatory practice in Hong Kong. Charlotte will form part of A&O’s global financial services regulatory practice which spans Asia Pacific, Europe, U.S. and the Middle East. Charlotte, who is dual Hong Kong and England & Wales qualified, joins from Norton Rose Fulbright where she has been a partner for the past five years. She has practised in Hong Kong for over 15 years.

The global regulatory environment is becoming ever more complex and continues to develop at pace. Global financial institutions need legal advice that enables them to understand how best to structure their business and operations in multiple jurisdictions or for cross-border activities. Charlotte’s expertise will assist clients across a diverse range of financial services regulatory requirements. Her focus is on advising banks, fund/asset managers, securities and insurance companies on compliance with regulatory laws, codes and guidelines, cross border issues, anti-money laundering and data privacy. Charlotte will work closely with A&O’s highly regarded regulatory and contentious regulatory teams.

Vicki Liu, Hong Kong Managing Partner, commented: “We are looking forward to welcoming Charlotte into our team. She brings expertise which is in high demand by our financial services clients and her arrival will not only add significant strength to our regulatory capability in Hong Kong, but further enhance our regional offering.”

Bob Penn, global head of Allen & Overy’s regulatory practice added: “Our knowledge of multi-jurisdictional regulatory matters is what wins us strategic roles on headline deals. A&O is one of the few firms that offers top-tier expertise combined with local depth spanning the US, Europe, Asia Pacific and the Middle East. The addition of Charlotte further enhances our position as a leading adviser to global financial institutions on complex, multi-jurisdictional financial services matters.”
