Asia search

The MRA Search Asia team is led by Ben Myers who relocated from the London office to open the first MRA Search Asia office in Hong Kong in 2013. The team has grown to date and has extensive and entrenched relationships with leading US and UK-based law firms across Hong Kong, Singapore and China.

In July 2022, Matt Hall-Turner relocated from our London office to Singapore to open MRA Search’s second office in Asia, continuing the group's focus and desire to build and further develop our reach and effectiveness in the Asia-Pacific region.

What we do

The MRA Search Asia team recruits at all levels within private practice, from newly qualified lawyers all the way to equity partners. We cover all practice areas within law firms including M&A and private equity, capital markets, banking, finance, funds, litigation and arbitration, projects and energy, regulatory, commercial TMT and IP, and private wealth.

We operate successfully using either model; we make sure our clients are updated at every stage of the process.
