Philip's hire also grows our Asia finance practice and he will work closely with our Asia finance team, including Adrian Cheng, Alexander Aitken, Kevin Roy, Siddhartha Sivaramakrishnan and Michelle Chen to provide clients will a full range of English, Hong Kong, Singapore and US law finance products in Asia.


Senior partner Jonathan Scott commented:


"We are committed to growing both our global DCM practice and our Asia finance team as strategic priorities. Following the hire of Andrew Roberts in London earlier this year, Philip's hire is another step in further enhancing our offering across these areas at a time when Asian economies continue to grow apace."
