Private Equity House Boosts Hong Kong Team

This publication brings latest news on moves and appointments in the Asia wealth management sector.

International private equity house Orrick has appointed Scott Peterman as a partner to its mergers and acquisitions practice in Hong Kong. 

Peterman acts for private fund sponsors and investors in the formation of alternative investment vehicles, including private equity funds, infrastructure and real estate funds, and hedge funds. In addition, he has advised on more than 150 account arrangements, representing sovereign wealth funds, universities, seeding and first-loss capital programs, family offices and individual investors.

Peterman previously worked at Jones Day and is the sixth partner to have joined the M&A practice in 12 months, becoming the firm’s fifth partner in Hong Kong.

In June this year Orrick said it had brought in Mark Lehmkuhler, a former partner at Davis Polk, to the Hong Kong group. 

Among other roles, Peterman has been a partner with Sidley Austin and practiced at Kirkland & Ellis and White & Case for many years in both the United States and Japan.  

Orrick is a global law firm focused on serving the technology, energy & infrastructure and finance sectors. The business was founded more than 150 years ago. About a quarter of the firm’s practice is outside the US, led from offices in China, Japan, Taiwan, the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium and Russia, as well as an affiliated office in Côte d’lvoire.
