Goodwin Procter has added a private equity partner to its Hong Kong office.
Gloria Liu was previously an associate with Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison. She has advised investment groups including Oaktree Capital, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co., and Goldman Sachs Principal Investment Area, on a variety of transactions in China and Taiwan.
Prior to joining Paul Weiss' Hong Kong office in 2006, Liu was an associate in the New York and Silicon Valley offices of both Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman and now-defunct Coudert Brothers.
In addition to bringing Liu aboard, Boston-based Goodwin Procter is also boosting its Hong Kong office with the relocation of litigation counsel Jay Chiu, who will focus on intellectual property and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act matters.
With the new additions, the firm will have eight lawyers in its Hong Kong office, which opened in 2008. Goodwin Procter has 850 lawyers worldwide.
