David Kuo is a corporate partner in DLA Piper's Singapore office and is qualified as a US attorney and a Hong Kong solicitor. Based in Asia since 2007, David has extensive experience in a broad range of transactions throughout Asia and the US, including cross-border M&A and business combinations, private equity and venture capital transactions, particularly in the real estate, technology and energy sectors.

David also has substantial experience leading corporate finance transactions, including equity, debt, hybrid and equity-linked securities. He is praised by a client for his “uncanny ability to discuss and absorb highly sophisticated deal points, absorb all the nuances and, with or without notes, come back with tight, elegant prose that completely delivers our intention or better.” He advises on all types of corporate mandates, including joint ventures, private equity investments and sales and acquisitions.
