    Implementing the new strategy

    Global law firm Eversheds has announced the appointment of a new management team in Asia as a key step in the planned restructuring of its operations in the region.

    Partners Stephen Kitts, Stephen Mok, Ivan Ng and King Tak Fung have all taken up new appointments in the new management team.

    Managing partner Lee Ranson said:

    "The next stage of our journey in Asia is to drive closer integration with the rest of our global business and to continue to invest in high calibre front line practitioners, in particular in corporate, finance and litigation. I am pleased to announce these new appointments for key roles in our new Asia management structure to drive forward Eversheds' strategic objectives and continue to grow our presence in the region - including opening a new office in Beijing this year."

    Stephen Kitts, who recently moved to the region from the UK, has been appointed as Asia Managing Partner.  Stephen is a senior corporate finance partner, specialising in mergers and acquisitions, disposals and private equity and has been with Eversheds for over 20 years.

    Stephen Mok has been appointed as Asia head of corporate. Stephen has extensive experience in capital markets and mergers and acquisitions, in particular, in securities offerings and listings, public takeovers and private mergers and acquisitions for Chinese enterprises and multi-national corporations.
    Ivan Ng will take up a new role as Asia head of litigation and dispute management team. Ivan specialises in contractual claims, banking litigation, insolvency and commercial fraud.

    King Tak Fung has been appointed as Asia head of finance.  He joined Eversheds in 2009 and is acknowledged as a leading banking lawyer in the region.  Prior to joining the legal profession, King Tak Fung was the former Vice President and Head of Trade Finance at Bank of America.

    All four new appointments are based in the firm's Hong Kong office, but each will have responsibility for their areas of practice across all offices in the region. The appointments are effective immediately.
