Happy New Year!
For many yesterday marked the first day back at work after the holidays, but already there is plenty of news spinning out of Asia.
For several other firms, 2014 is set to be a year of change. You may have missed in the Christmas rush that DLA Piper revamped its Asia leadership structure just before the festive season. It scrapped the Asia Pacific managing director role and installed a new US-led, three-member advisory committee, in a move aimed at bolstering US-Asia deal flow.
There is no doubt that it will be an exciting and expansive year for many in the region.
