New York’s Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson has hired William Yoo, who will specialize in real estate equity and debt transactions as well as corporate finance in the firm’s Hong Kong office. Yoo was previously in the Tokyo office of Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker. Yoo’s real estate work includes structuring equity investments for off-shore investors. He has worked extensively with banks, financial institutions, private equity funds and investors. “We believe that the addition of William to our office in Hong Kong will particularly enhance our capacity to service U.S. equity investors and lenders seeking to expand in the Asian market,” Jon Mechanic, head of Fried Frank’s real estate practice, said in a news release. Fried Frank opened its Hong Kong office at the beginning of the year and then opened doors in Shanghai in October. The firm has more than 600 lawyers in seven offices.
