Star Anise is pleased to announce a new joiner

The Star Anise group is pleased to welcome a new joiner, Ms Shona Drummond to its legal recruitment division, Star Anise Legal. Shona joins the private practice legal team, led by managing director Chris Tang.

As an Associate Consultant, Shona focuses on helping international law firms in the recruitment of qualified legal talent (Associates, Senior Associates, Legal Managers, and Of Counsels and Legal Directors) in both the Asian and UK law firm markets, with particular focus on Hong Kong.

Prior to joining Star Anise, Shona read Politics, Philosophy, and Economics and graduated with a first-class degree from the University of Hull, England, where she discovered Hong Kong during a semester abroad. Whilst studying at university, Shona was heavily involved with the politics society which involved working alongside prestigious professors and political figures to excite and educate students in the British legislature.

Shona played hockey internationally whilst at university and is now enjoying scoring goals in the Hong Kong heat.

Our Co-Managing Director, Chris Tang, commented: “My team and I are thrilled to have Shona join us, she has displayed all the attributes that we were looking for in a graduate — motivated, enthusiastic, outgoing, with a real passion for recruitment and helping others in boosting their career. It's an exciting time to join the legal recruitment market and I'm looking forward to seeing Shona grow and develop her own footprint in the industry."
