APRIL 22, 2014 – The Shanghai office of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP will be marking its 20th anniversary with a celebration at the Pudong Shangri-La Hotel this Thursday evening (4.24.14). The Honorable Gary Locke, former U.S. ambassador to China, former U.S. secretary of commerce, and a former partner at Davis Wright Tremaine, will be in attendance.

In 1993, Davis Wright Tremaine became the first U.S. law firm authorized to open a law office in Shanghai. In the more than two decades since, the firm has been helping clients from many industries continue to prosper through changing economic times.
