International law firm Akin Gump has appointed four partners from Bingham McCutcheon in the firm’s corporate, restructuring and funds practices in London and Hong Kong.

The new partners are: Vance Chapman (corporate, London), Thomas John Holton (funds, London), Matthew Puhar (corporate, Hong Kong) and Thiha Tun (funds, London).
 
These practitioners join 22 partners from Bingham McCutchen who, as announced on September 17, will be joining Akin Gump in London, Hong Kong and Frankfurt over the coming weeks.
 
Akin Gump chairperson Kim Koopersmith says: “We were thrilled with our announcement last week, and the chance to welcome these additional stellar lawyers further reinforces this outstanding opportunity. Their accomplishments and strengths have been widely recognised over the years, but, more importantly, the results they have obtained for their clients are the true proof of their excellence. This continued expansion of our capabilities and services in these critical markets is further evidence of our commitment to the development of a truly robust international platform that plays to our strengths and benefits our clients.”
