O’Melveny & Myers appoints new head for Hong Kong practice

O’Melveny & Myers’ capital markets specialist David Johnson has been appointed as the head of the firm’s Hong Kong practice. Johnson will relocate from California where he has acted as the global head of the Transactions department, which develops and implements the firm’s worldwide strategy.    Johnson’s practice includes working with corporations, financial institutions, and investment funds on a variety of capital market offerings, capital formations, strategic advice and restructurings.   “The firm’s practice in Asia is one of our proudest achievements. Very few international firms can match the level of our offerings across China, Japan, India, Korea, Singapore, and Southeast Asia, and now with our new associated office, Indonesia,” Johnson said in a statement. “I am excited to continue my work with our great team here in Asia, but now located in Hong Kong. I am looking forward to being even more involved in the great work we do for clients in the region.”
