Mayer Brown has welcomed back oil and gas specialist Joanne Du as a partner in Hong Kong from Baker Botts.

Du began her career with Mayer Brown in 2003, before joining Norton Rose Fulbright in 2007 for a brief stint. In 2008, she joined Jones Day, being made partner in 2014, before moving to Baker Botts a year later.

Du advises international oil and gas companies, Chinese oil and gas companies, and other PRC-based corporations and state-owned institutions on domestic and cross-border energy transactions.

Her work includes advice and assistance on bids and the tendering process, investment assessment and strategy, due diligence review, joint ventures and joint operations, asset or share acquisitions, investment and operation compliance, gas sales and distribution.

Du’s departure means that Baker Botts now has a single partner based in Hong Kong, Russell Wilkinson.
