Lovells star moves to DLA Piper China

DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary has poached Lovells lawyer Rocky Lee to head its venture capital and private equity practice in Beijing. The California-qualified lawyer has worked on a number of high-profile China venture capital matters and specialises in corporate finance, foreign direct investment and M&A. Lee has also worked on a number of cross-border transaction restructuring matters. The appointment comes after DLA Piper raided the now dissolved Coudert Brothers, taking its managing partner Jingzhou Tao last year.
