Former DLA Piper partner Gene Buttrill has joined the Hong Kong office of Proskauer Rose as a partner. Buttrill specializes in capital markets and corporate finance transactions in the technology sector. Last year, he represented Chinese wind-turbine maker Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology Co. Ltd. on its $917 million initial public offering in Hong Kong. He also advised on a $1 billion high-yield bond offering by CITIC Resources Holdings Ltd., an energy and minerals exploration investment company, in 2007. Prior to joining DLA Piper’s Hong Kong office as a partner in 2007, Buttrill was associate at Simpson Thacher & Bartlett. Joining Proskauer with Buttrill is senior counsel Jay Tai, previously an associate in the Hong Kong office of Ropes & Gray. At Ropes & Gray, Tai was part of a team that represented bondholders of Jiangsu Zhongneng Polysilicon Technology Development Co. Ltd. in that company’s $3.4 billion acquisition by solar cell maker GCL-Poly Energy Holdings Ltd. – one of the biggest Chinese mergers of 2009. Tai, who is admitted in Hong Kong, will also become a consultant at Chapman & Co., a Hong Kong law firm affiliated with Proskauer. Ronald Papa, the New York-based co-chair of 700-lawyer Proskauer’s corporate department, hailed the additions as a boost to the firm’s capital markets practice.Our capital markets group has been experiencing unprecedented levels of activity, and Gene brings talent, stature and experience that will help to propel our continued expansion in Asia and throughout the world,” Papa said in a statement. New York-based Proskauer opened in Hong Kong in 2008 and now has around 10 lawyers in that office.
