Hogan Lovells Adds IDCM Strength With Third Hire This Year
28 October 2014
HONG KONG, 28 October 2014 – Hogan Lovells has recruited Bronwen May to join its Hong Kong finance practice. Bronwen joined on 15 September 2014 as a partner in the International Debt Capital Markets (IDCM) team.
Bronwen joins Hogan Lovells from O'Melveny & Myers where she held the role of Head of Derivatives (Asia), and advises on the full range of derivatives, including fixed income, equity, credit, fund-linked and commodity (OTC and exchange traded) products as well as structured products (including warrants), and also on the legal and regulatory implications of these transactions. High profile clients she has advised include Deutsche Bank, Standard Chartered Bank and a major Chinese investment bank.
Bronwen's hire will complement and follows those of IDCM partners Andy Ferris in Singapore in March this year, and Lewis Cohen in New York in September. Her practice has been named in all of the major directories in Asia (Legal 500, Chambers, IFLR1000).
Commenting on Bronwen's arrival, Sharon Lewis, global head of Hogan Lovells' finance practice, said:
"Bronwen has an excellent reputation in the Asia market and is a welcome addition to our global IDCM and finance practices. Hogan Lovells has an established strong global practice, renowned for its US and English law capability; Bronwen's arrival, combined with that of Andy Ferris earlier this year, extends this to our Asia practice."
"Hogan Lovells’ platform, both in terms of practice areas and geographical spread, is extremely appealing and provides the opportunity to liaise across practice and geographical boundaries and pitch for a broad and varied range of interesting work. I am very much looking forward to working with the team here in Hong Kong and globally."
