Withers set to extend its corporate and finance offering to Asia

Withers is extending its corporate and finance offering to Asia in response to growing client demand. Denis Petkovic, head of the international finance and projects practice at Withers in London, will lead the firm’s initiative to build an Asian regional corporate and finance team from Hong Kong.

Petkovic has 30 years of experience representing lenders, developers and investors in transactions in many sectors including energy, telecommunications, ports, oil and gas, real estate, transportation, steel and hotels across Asia, Europe, the Commonwealth of Independent States, Africa and the Middle East.

His clients have also included multilateral institutions such as the International Finance Corporation and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (for whom he has recently led Withers teams in a number of real-estate financings including the Abdali Shopping Mall financing in Amman, Jordan, and the Forum shopping mall financing in Lviv, Ukraine).
