Working between Sydney and Hong Kong, Naomi Moore joins as our new Head of APAC Restructuring. Naomi joins us from Akin Gump in Hong Kong where she was a partner in the Restructuring team.

Naomi will be working closely with our existing team in Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia.

Commenting on the hire, Co-chair of Global Restructuring, Chris Parker, said: “I am delighted to welcome Naomi to the firm. Naomi’s market profile, extensive experience in Asia, Australian background, and strong global client base, ideally places her to further strengthen our special situations and global restructuring team. Naomi is well known to many US based stakeholders - including funds, other sponsors and financial advisers. This, coupled with her first-class experience and reputation in the market, gives us a truly leading offering between the major financial centres - and enables us to fully service our global clients’ needs”.

DLA Piper’s International Group Head of Finance, Projects & Restructuring (FPR), Colin Wilson, added:

“With almost 800 fee earners across our international offices, FPR is one of the driving forces of the DLA Piper global practice, providing market-leading insight and advice and representing leading investment and commercial financial institutions, public and private companies, and government entities.
