As we approach the beginning of 2018 — Asia Law Portal continues its annual tradition begun in 2015— of naming 30 people to watch in the business of law in the coming year. The legal leaders and entrepreneurs Asia Law Portal suggest to watch in 2018 testify to the diverse nature of recent developments and serve as a preview for what may come in the year ahead.

In Gorham’s profile, Asia Law Portal wrote:

As Asian Legal Business detailed, U.S.-headquartered Seyfarth Shaw opened its Hong Kong office earlier in 2017.  In discussing the reason for opening in Hong Kong, Gorham, who helped establish the practice, explained: “I think there are still very few of us in the market here who are long-term specialists in what we do….Seyfarth… is a specialist international employment law firm [which] will position [us] to compete with established firms in Hong Kong, and Asia.”
