During his 21 years at Troutman Sanders, the firm has grown from 150 lawyers in Atlanta to 650 lawyers in 14 offices across the U.S., plus Hong Kong and Shanghai. Bill has been intimately involved in the due diligence and logistics of opening each new office. He has developed and broad based knowledge of doing business in Hong Kong and China that should be incredibly valuable to small businesses that want to explore whether a China strategy makes sense for them.
Carl E. Sanders, Chairman Emeritus of Troutman Sanders and Governor of Georgia(1963-1967)
During his 21 years with the Firm, Bill has been a key player in every office opening and every law firm merger as we grew from one office in Atlanta to 16 offices on three continents. He has been an extraordinary asset to me throughout my 17 year tenure as Managing Partner, and he has been extremely valuable to the Firm for his entire career at Troutman Sanders. He has led by example with his tireless efforts, dedication and commitment to the Firm, which I very much appreciate. I will miss him, but wish him great success with his new venture, China Business Consulting.
