Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom is relocating a mergers and acquisitions partner from London to a Hong Kong office battered by the recent departure of two top partners to Kirkland & Ellis.

John Adebiyi, a partner at Skadden since 2001, has worked on a number of high-profile cross-border deals.
