Herbert Smith boosts Asia finance practice with A&O hire
Herbert Smith has boosted its Asia finance capacity with the hire of Philip Lee, a former international capital markets consultant in Allen & Overy's Singapore office. Lee joins the firm as a partner, and will focus his practice on debt capital markets.
Senior Partner Jonathan Scott said: "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.”
