Tanner De Witt is Hong Kong’s second fastest law firm


Tanner De Witt is pleased to announce that eight of its team members competed in the Bloomberg Square Mile Relay on Thursday 5th November and achieved an overall result of 43rd place out of 123 teams. The event saw more than one thousand runners race around a particularly bendy one mile course in a relay format.

Teams fought for position and displayed impressive speed on very a balmy Hong Kong night against the dramatic backdrop of Central and its famous skyscrapers. We were thrilled to beat out most of the competition and to complete the ten mile course in 1:07:17 leaving us as the second fastest law firm in the race. Congratulations to Mayer Brown JSM who were five minutes faster.
