10 December, 2014

 

Hogan Lovells has announced that Mark Cooper will join its corporate practice as a partner in Singapore, with effect from 3 February 2015. Mark joins from Linklaters in Singapore, having been previously based in London and Hong Kong. Mark focuses on M&A and private equity transactions across South East Asia in a range of sectors including healthcare, consumer, financial institutions and energy and natural resources. Combined with the arrival of TMT partner Mark Parsons, Mark is Hogan Lovells’ fourth corporate partner hire in Asia in the last 12 months and the 9th partner hire in Asia this year.

 

Mark commented: “Hogan Lovells has a strong reputation in Singapore and provides the ideal platform to build a credible pan-Asia practice. I look forward to working with Office Managing Partner Stephanie Keen to continue to build our offering across the South East Asia region.”

 

David Gibbons, global head of Hogan Lovells’ corporate practice, said: Mark is the perfect fit for our corporate practice in South East Asia. The region is of considerable interest for international clients as the growing wealth of the populations across Indonesia and the other emerging economies is now creating a major wave of investment, and the region continues to attract significant inflows of foreign capital. Mark’s experience spanning key jurisdictions and sectors enhances our ability to advise on the most complex transactions, involving the South East Asia region.”

 

Patrick Sherrington, Regional Managing Partner for Asia and the Middle East, commented: “Investment and expansion in the Asia region is a key focus for us and our clients, which we have addressed this year by making nine lateral hires in 2014 alone, four in Singapore, spanning our corporate, finance and litigation practices.”
