DLA Piper bolsters HK capital markets practice

Hong Kong

DLA Piper has hired George Wu as a capital markets partner in its corporate practice in Hong Kong. The firm also appointed Russell Wilkinson as a partner in its Hong Kong finance, projects and restructuring practice.

Wu joined from Herbert Smith Freehills in Hong Kong, where he was of counsel for almost 10 years. He advises on corporate and securities transactions, including IPOs, debt offerings, private equity, M&A and compliance matters.

Wilkinson joined from Baker Botts in Hong Kong, where he has been a senior energy partner since 2006. He has expertise in liquefied natural gas, making him one of only a handful of specialist energy practitioners in Asia, and regularly advises oil and gas companies and energy traders across the region.
