10 December 2010

Leading capital markets and M&A lawyers Barbara Mok, Anne Ko and Katherine U are joining the Corporate Practice of Minter Ellison's Hong Kong office as partners. They, together with recent arrivals Geraldine Johns-Putra and Anthony Chan, join Fred Kinmonth's existing team of senior, high profile lawyers as the firm continues to expand.

Barbara, Anne and Katherine join from Jones Day where they are recognised leaders in the areas of capital markets and M&A with a long track record of working on deals in the HK and China market. This includes many leading PRC SOEs, POEs, Banks, Hong Kong listed red chip companies and multinational companies with investments in China.

"We are delighted to welcome Barbara, Anne and Katherine, who between them have nearly 70 years of exceptional experience and knowledge of working in this market" said Mark Green, International Managing Partner of Minter Ellison. "Their arrival further strengthens our capability in this area as demand for capital markets and M&A advice continues to grow in Greater China and we expand our core practice areas of M&A and capital markets (particularly in the resources and infrastructure sectors) through our HK, Shanghai and Beijing offices."

Barbara added "We are excited to be joining the largest law firm in the Asia Pacific who with its significant presence in Greater China means it is in an excellent position to meet the increasing demand for sophisticated legal services that Chinese and multinational clients require"
