Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton partner Megan Tang is leaving the firm to join the Securities & Futures Commission of Hong Kong.

Beginning next month, Tang will work as director of the corporate finance division, which oversees listings on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange on behalf of the SFC.

At Cleary, Tang represented clients in capital markets, mergers and acquisitions and private equity deals in Greater China. Last April, she was U.S. counsel to Goldman Sachs International as underwriter on a $1.5 billion bond offering by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd. She also advised on corporate governance and compliance matters, including general disclosure obligations, insider trading, and anti-corruption regulations.

Tang joined Cleary as a partner in 2008 from Shearman & Sterling, where she was a Hong Kong-based counsel. She previously worked for Shearman as an associate in New York and Singapore, moving to Hong Kong in 2004. Prior to joining Shearman in 2001, Tang was an associate in the Singapore office of Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy.
