International Law Firm Names Banking Partner For Hong Kong

Simmons & Simmons, the international law firm that deals with financial institutions, has appointed a new banking partner for its Hong Kong office.

Dan Marjanovic joins the company from Norton Rose Australia, where he was a partner and national team leader of the banking and finance team. He specialises in advising banks, sponsors and corporate borrowers on cross-border financings in Asia and Australia. In his new role, he will focus on the South East Asian market.

Simmons & Simmons continues to grow in Asia and has already applied for a license to practise in Singapore. In 2012, it appointed five partners for the region, namely Tom Fyfe for dispute resolution, Vivien Yang for corporate, Jay Lee for finance, Yongmei Evers Cai for finance and Lesli Ligorner for employment.

Marjanovic will relocate to Singapore when the licence to operate in the city-state is in place.
