Fortnum & Mason’s New Store In Hong Kong Opening


Osborne Clarke has advised Fortnum & Mason on the opening of its new store in Hong Kong this month, which marks its first standalone store and restaurant opening outside of the UK.

The new Hong Kong restaurant and store are set within Victoria Dockside’s pioneering cultural hub of K11 MUSEA.

Fortnum & Mason is a renowned retailer and hospitality business, word famous for its iconic store at 181 Piccadilly, London. The retailer has been seeing consistent year-on-year growth despite the overall down trend on the high street.

Partner Marcus Vass led the Osborne Clarke team advising Fortnum & Mason in relation to the new Hong Kong store opening with the assistance of Partner Tim Birt (Picture), Senior Associate Jonathan Culley (providing construction and projects advice), and associates James Salisbury and Charlotte Groom (commercial). Partner Alice Li led the Hong Kong team’s provision of local regulatory advice.
