Dentons has recruited David Blumenfeld as head of real estate for the Asia-Pacific. Based in Hong Kong, Blumenfeld will lead cross-border investment transactions and work closely with Dentons’ 200 real estate lawyers in Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney, Seoul and more than 20 other Asia-Pacific offices.

Blumenfeld’s practices focus on high-profile real estate investment work and complex cross-border deals for PE firms, financial institutions, investment banks and other institutional investors investing in China, Japan and other regional locations.
