Freshfields continues growth trajectory with strategic restructuring and capital solutions partner hire in Hong Kong

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer (‘Freshfields’) has appointed Daniel Anderson as a partner. He will be based in Hong Kong.

Daniel joins the firm from Ropes & Gray, where he led the Asia restructuring and special situations practice. He has particular expertise in both restructuring and capital solutions (special situations). His hire marks a significant step for Freshfields’ Asia restructuring and capital solutions offering and complements strategic investments by the firm in Europe and the U.S. in this space.

“Our partners are pleased to welcome Daniel to Freshfields,” said Asia Managing Partner Thomas Ng. “He brings a strong market profile, impressive creditor-side credentials, and proven execution capabilities across a broad range of restructuring and capital solutions mandates, both in Hong Kong and the wider Asia region. His hire could not be more timely as we continue to grow our restructuring practice and private capital bench in Asia, and I have every confidence that Daniel will enrich our client offering across the region.”

“It’s an honour to take up the opportunity to join the Freshfields partnership,” said Daniel Anderson. “Both globally and within the region, the firm has an enviable reputation and market position, and provides a fantastic platform to serve some of the world’s leading investment funds and special situations investors. I look forward to supporting them on their most challenging regional and cross-border mandates.”
