Clifford Chance has strengthened its global funds and investment management team with the hire of Xing Liyong as a partner in Hong Kong. Xing joins from Kirkland & Ellis where she was a partner in the Hong Kong office for almost four years.
Xing is experienced in advising global and Asian fund sponsors on the structuring, formation and governance of private investment funds across a variety of strategies, including venture capital, growth capital, buyout, real estate, infrastructure, secondaries and co-investment. She has represented private equity firms in establishing China-focused funds.
Alexandra Davidson, Clifford Chance’s global head of funds and investment management in London, said high levels of activity across asset classes required more practitioners with expertise in these areas.
“We are committed to growing our offering to clients across Asia Pacific in line with our global strategy,” said Davidson. “Liyong’s deep and wide range of experience will further strengthen our leading international practice.”
