firm’s Hong Kong office as a partner in its Global Finance practice. Mr.
Wardrop was formerly with Hogan Lovells.

represents private equity sponsors, hedge funds, asset managers and
commercial and investment banks concerning mezzanine, special situation
financings and investments. He also has extensive experience advising

knowledge of corporate lending, cross-border transactions, property
financings, and direct and alternative lending by funds.
