Two Tanner De Witt Employment Partners named 2020 Thought Leaders by Who’s Who Legal

Tanner De Witt Partners Kim Boreham and Russell Bennett, co-heads of the Employment Practice, are both named as Thought Leaders in Labour & Employment by Who’s Who Legal: Thought Leaders – Hong Kong 2020.

The honour also secures Tanner De Witt as the only Hong Kong law firm to have two Labour & Employment Thought Leaders recognised by Who’s Who Legal, garnering two of the five total award recipients.

Kim and Russell celebrate the recognition after a busy 2019 and early 2020 for Tanner De Witt, adding to the 20 years of history the firm has gained acting for parties in several of the leading reported cases in Hong Kong. Both partners are regular speakers to employers, business groups, and human resource professionals.

Recently, Russell joined the Dutch Consul General to Hong Kong and an international crisis consultant as the sole lawyer on a panel to address the employee and employer considerations of the COVID-19 outbreak. A few days later, he was the only lawyer on a British Chamber of Commerce webinar, giving the employment lawyer’s perspective on how to navigate the current business climate in Hong Kong as an SME owner.

Likewise, Kim continues to be a leading lawyer on mandates covering the Labour and Employment spectrum, acting for both employers and employees in a wide range of industry sectors including banking and finance, insurance, publishing, manufacturing and professional services.
