DLA Piper strengthens Asian presence


Aiming to strengthen its operations in Asia, international firm DLA Piper has build up its corporate finance and M&A practice groups. The firm hired leading lawyers Koji Ishikawa and Esther Leung as partners in the firm's Tokyo and Hong Kong offices respectively. Backed with experience in corporate finance, Ishikawa previously served at the U.S. firm O'Melveny & Myers. The addition of a partner in the Tokyo office is a significant inclusion in the Asian corporate team since the firm also recently hired senior Motorola in-house lawyer Jeffery Tan as a partner in the corporate and technology practice.

Moreover, Leung, with experience in cross-border IPO listings, M&A, private equity and restructuring, formerly worked with Australian firm Mallesons Stephen Jacques. DLA Piper has three offices in China - Beijing, Hong Kong, and Shanghai, with more than 100 lawyers. In a bid to further strengthen its legal services offered in China, the firm recently hired Henry Wang, former general counsel of Shanghai General Motors, as partner in the firm's Shanghai office. The firm has witnessed significant growth in the region last year with its raid on Coudert's China practice, which added 20 lawyers.

Success Stories

LawCrossing is fantastic! When I am looking for a job, it is the first place I come to. The service is very good and I enjoyed the emails. LawCrossing has more jobs and it is more tailored. Other sites gave a lot of irrelevant results. Your site may have a great algorithm, but it felt like an actual person choosing jobs they felt would be good based on my search. I will always recommend this site!
