Weil Gotshal & Manges hires away from Freshfields
Weil Gotshal & Manges has hired Charles Ching, a corporate partner, from Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer. The move comes shortly after the firm’s China head, Steven Xiang, departed the firm.
Ching was previously based in Freshfield’s Hong Kong office but will now work out of Weil Gotshal’s Shanghai office. Ching became partner three years ago. He joined Freshfields in 2010 as a counsel.
Ching is dual qualified in New York and Hong Kong and works on complex private equity and M&A transactions and securities offerings.
