金杜律师事务所澳大利亚办公室迎来银行和融资业务合伙人林永耀律师,进一步扩充并提升跨境融资业务实力。

Asia’s top tier international law firm King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) has strengthened its cross-border finance capability with the appointment of Banking and Finance partner David Lam.

Fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese, in addition to English, David has built an effective practice focussed on cross-border loan financing outbound from China where he has advised lenders, sponsors and corporate borrowers on a wide range of financing transactions including acquisition financing, pre-IPO financing, real estate financing, impact financing, general syndicated and bilateral lending, restructuring and non-performing loans, with a particular focus on PRC-related transactions.

对于林律师的任命,金杜中国管理合伙人王玲表示:“欢迎林律师回归金杜全球合伙人团队!林律师的回归,是金杜为客户持续提供全球化法律服务,并以卓越的跨境专业服务获得市场认可。”
