Simmons & Simmons has landed the former head of Herbert Smith’s Asia banking and finance practice for its Hong Kong office.
Jonathan Moult joined Simmons at the start of February as a partner. He specialises in global loans, acquisition finance and property finance and capital markets.
Moult spent seven years at Herbert Smith’s Hong Kong office before he was asked to return to London last year as part of the firm's rotational policy. Moult subsequently decided he wanted to return to Asia and opted for Simmons, having got to know the firm during his time in Hong Kong.
Huen Wong, head of the China practice said: “We’re very pleased to welcome Jonathan to the firm. Our banking practice in Asia has gone from strength to strength in recent years and we are committed to seeing continued growth in this important practice area.”
