Legal Week quoted Wendy Wysong in a June 1 article titled "Hong Kong Lawyers React as the US Strips Hong Kong of Special Trade Status." The article discusses President Trump's announcement that he will begin stripping Hong Kong of its special trade privileges and that he no longer considers Hong Kong to be separate from China. The article states that the announcement has prompted global lawyers and international corporations to worry about the future of Hong Kong and their place in the city.
Wysong, Steptoe's Hong Kong managing partner, says she and other lawyers at the firm have been busy speaking with clients to try to position themselves and find out the actual implications of the announcement. "This is just what we're here for. We love trying to solve our clients' issues and helping them navigate their way through so that they can continue to operate. But it's certainly a challenge," Wysong says.
