Covington & Burling has opened its first Asian office in Beijing. The international law firm already provides advice on Asia but said it had decided to set up a first hand presence in the region to better serve its clients. The new office, headed by the firm's former chairman Stuart Stock, will provide services in a broad range of areas including investment, M&A, licensing and intellectual property, in addition to pharmaceutical-specific advice.
