Ashurst Strengthens Asia Pacific Debt Capital Markets Practice

International law firm Ashurst has strengthened its debt capital markets team with the appointment of Jini Lee as a partner in its Hong Kong-based Securities and Derivatives Group.

Joining from Linklaters, Lee has wide-ranging international capital markets expertise and has experience in advising both issuers and underwriters in bond transactions, medium term notes, liability management exercises and equity-linked transactions.

Jini Lee had previously worked in the Hong Kong and London offices of Linklaters. She is fluent in Mandarin and is qualified as a solicitor in Hong Kong, England and Wales and as an advocate and solicitor in Singapore.

Commenting on the appointment, Paul Jenkins, Co-head of Ashurst's Finance Division said, "The continued growth of the offshore RMB bond market and the need for China to diversify away from domestic funding for outbound M&A activities means that DCM is a growth area. Jini Lee has significant experience of advising many of the leading banks for China-based DCM work as well as the most active corporate issuers in the market. Her appointment complements the recent hire of Chin Chuan Chen and his team in Beijing, which will give us an even stronger offering to Chinese banks and international banks operating in China.
