Linklaters has added four more lawyers to its Asian structured finance and securitisation practice, set up earlier this month under Paul Kruger.Mary Matson will join the Asian team in Hong Kong as head of securitisation - she has more than 10 years of experience in securitisation in various Asian markets. Paul Chu and Lora Lam will also join the Hong Kong team. Edith Au Yeung will join Linklaters' Tokyo office as a managing associate.
All four, like Kruger, come from Clifford Chance, where Kruger was head of the Asian capital markets group.
Linklaters managing partner for Asia, Simon Davies, said: "We have been steadily increasing our global capability in the securitisation and derivatives/structured finance area... Asia needed to catch up. Paul Kruger’s appointment, along with his team, further enhances our client offering in Tokyo, in Hong Kong and across the rest of Asia.”
