DLA Piper hires employment expert in Hong Kong
DLA Piper has announced the hire of partner Julia Gorham from JP Morgan, who joins the firm as the Head of the Asia Employment practice. Gorham leaves behind her role at JP Morgan as Executive Director, Litigation and Employment Counsel, Asia Pacific, which she has held since 2010.
Gorham specialises in employment law and internal investigations, and has experience in contentious regulatory proceedings and a broad range of civil litigation.
Terry O'Malley, Co-Global CEO at DLA Piper said: "Julia is a great addition for us in Asia. Her deep understanding of the financial services industry fits nicely with that part of our practice, and her experience in highly sensitive investigations and regulatory matters provides important depth in an area of emphasis for us within the region, and of strategic importance to our clients in the US, Europe and Australia. Her leadership experience with one of the world’s leading financial institutions provides an important added perspective that will benefit both our lawyers and our clients."
