The firm has identified the South East Asia region as a market with growth opportunities, and said it was looking to expand its activities in the region.
Bruce Mackay, Baker Tilly UK partner, responsible for liasing with the Hong Kong office, said: ‘I suspect we will expand from this newly created base. The partners in the office have ambitious growth plans.’
The opportunity to open in Hong Kong came after Rupert Purser and Simon Blade entered into discussions with the firm at the end of last year.
Both have experience of the Hong Kong recoveries market and they have since become joint managing partners of the new office.
‘Once negotiations with Rupert and Simon had began, they were concluded very swiftly,’ added Mackay.
