O’Melveny & Myers has appointed Nima Amini as the managing partner of its Hong Kong office in place of James Ford, who moved to Allen & Overy.
Ford handles funds and asset management matters such as those involving private equity, real estate, credit and infrastructure, fund establishments and structuring, and strategic fund investments. He joins Allen & Overy’s Asia-Pacific funds and asset management practice.
Amini, who has been with the O’Melveny for 14 years, advises on private equity and multi-jurisdictional public and private M&A matters. He was named Young Lawyer of the Year at the ALB Hong Kong Law Awards 2016.
“Nima is a natural choice for this key leadership role,” said O’Melveny chair Bradley J. Butwin. “We are delighted that he will be at the helm as we execute on our client-focused strategy in Hong Kong and throughout Asia.”
