DLA Piper has scored a massive coup for its Asia banking practice with the hire of Bank of China's (BoC) head of legal Andrew Wang.
Wang's hire, as first revealed on www.thelawyer.com (6 September), follows other in-house raids in Asia, with the firm hiring Henry Wang, former general counsel of Shanghai GM Automotive, earlier this year.
DLA Piper Asia managing partner Nick Seddon said the firm had been targeting growth in its banking practice and was also looking to grow its capital markets capability.
The firm also hired former Motorola Asia-Pacific general counsel and Singapore president Jeffrey Tan into its Singapore office in August.
