DLA Piper has moved to bolster its London litigation practice with the hire of Denton Wilde Sapte (DWS) partner Philip Chong. Chong is to join DLA Piper today (4 December) after the firm was able to negotiate an early exit from DWS, which has been known to hold departing partners to 12 months' gardening leave. Chong focuses on international disputes and recently represented Switzerland-based AllSeas Group in its successful €350m (£179.96m) arbitration against Singapore's Sembawang shipyard over work on a vessel. DLA Piper's joint global leader of litigation Julian Stait said the hire "coincides with one of the busiest periods for our London team over the last decade".
