Linklaters’ Hong Kong-based corporate partner Dominic Tsun has quit after almost eight years with the magic circle firm. Tsun’s departure is a blow to the firm because of his close relationships with a number of investment banks, including Goldman Sachs and HSBC. Last April Tsun advised HSBC as global coordinator, bookrunner, lead manager and sponsor on the listing of Nam Tai Electronic & Electrical Products. In the same month he also acted for JP Morgan, which was the sponsor and bookrunner on the initial public offering of Solomon Systech. Tsun, who has been a partner in Linklaters’ Hong Kong office since 1998, is leaving the firm to pursue opportunities in investment banking. The Lawyer understands he has yet to secure a new position. A Linklaters’ spokesperson confirmed Tsun had resigned and would be leaving the firm in April.
