Cooley recruits corporate partner from Kirkland in Beijing
Cooley has hired corporate partner Henry Yin from Kirkland & Ellis in Beijing.
Yin began at Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom in New York in 2009 before moving on to Kirkland & Ellis in 2014, joining the firm’s Hong Kong office. His expertise is in M&A and private equity in such sectors as digital media, life sciences, and pharmaceuticals.
Cooley’s Beijing office was opened last January, the firm’s second Chinese offering after its Shanghai launch in 2011. Business department global chair Mike Lincoln referred to the launch as a move towards international growth in APAC.
