DLA Piper has announced that Stephen Peepels and Gene Buttrill, leading corporate and securities lawyers with long track records in Asia, have joined the firm’s Corporate and Securities practice group as partners. The hires mark a significant step in the continued expansion of DLA Piper’s global Corporate and Finance practice, as the firm has continued to build upon the practice since Meltzer became Global Chair in February. Peepels and Buttrill bring vast experience with cross-border IPOs, and share strong ties to the world’s leading investment banks with whom the firm is actively working to forge deeper relationships around the world. The addition of these attorneys also helps position DLA Piper as a premier firm delivering integrated legal advice on public offerings in Hong Kong and the United States, and allows it to take advantage of the strong market for international capital markets transactions regionally.
