Weil suffers further HK loss as pair leaves for Gibson Dunn
Gibson Dunn & Crutcher has landed the hire of a pair of funds partners from Weil Gotshal & Manges.
Funds partners John Fadely and Albert Cho will make the move to Gibson Dunn almost exactly a year after the firm hired the four-partner team from Ropes & Gray that brought in the firm’s Hong Kong office head Paul Boltz.
Fadely and Cho’s departure further complicates an already messy transition period for Weil’s Hong Kong office, which suffered the loss of its head Akiko Mikumo earlier this year. The branch has since been co-managed by partners Tim Gardner and Charles Ching, the latter of whom works remotely from Shanghai.
