DLA Piper hires Mark Fairbairn and Ashley Bell to its restructuring group
DLA Piper has announced the appointments of Mark Fairbairn and Ashley Bell to the firm’s restructuring group from O’Melveny & Myers.
Fairbairn takes on the role of head of restructuring for Asia and is based in Hong Kong. He focuses on distressed and alternative investments, financial restructurings (including ‘loan to own’ transactions and rescue finance) and formal insolvency matters.
Over the past 20 years, he has acted for major financial institutions, investment banks, hedge and private equity investors, insolvency practitioners, turnaround specialists, steering committees and public and private corporations on cross-border transactions across Asia.
Bell will join the firm in Singapore as of-counsel in the restructuring practice. He has extensive experience representing multinational corporations, financial institutions and private equity investors across Asia and will work closely together with Fairbairn in the execution of client mandates.
These hires come within weeks of Timothy Tan joining DLA Piper’s Bangkok office as a partner in the corporate group, also from O’Melveny & Myers.
