DLA Piper had added George Wu as a partner in Hong Kong from Herbert Smith Freehills, where he was an of counsel.

Wu is DLA’s second partner hire in Hong Kong a matter of weeks. The firm recently welcomed IP and fintech expert Kristi Swartz, a former managing partner of the Hong Kong office of the legacy Bryan Cave.

Prior to spending a decade at Herbert Smith Freehills, Wu was with U.S. firm Pryor Cashman in New York, and with Baker McKenzie in Shanghai. He advises on corporate and securities transactions including IPOs, debt offerings, private equity, M&A and compliance matters.

Following Wu’s hire, DLA Piper has 24 partners in its Hong Kong office.
