Jeremy Hunt, formerly a partner in the Hong Kong office of
Allen & Overy, specializes in Hong Kong capital markets transactions and private equity mergers and acquisitions. Earlier this year, he advised The Carlyle Group on its $2.65 billion disposal of part of its interest in China Pacific Insurance (Group) Co. Ltd.
Hunt was a partner at Allen & Overy for over 14 years. He relocated to Hong Kong from the firm’s London headquarters in 2007.
The addition of Hunt follows the firm’s hiring of former
Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe partner Thomas Man in Beijing. San Francisco-based Morrison & Forester last year also boosted its Hong Kong capital markets practice with the hires of former
Herbert Smith partners John Moore and Melody He-Chen.
Keith Wetmore, the firm’s outgoing chairman, says Hunt will help Morrison & Foester expand its private equity practice in the region.
