Eversheds Sutherland has strengthened its IPO practice in Hong Kong with the hire of Roger Zhou as a partner in Hong Kong from Morgan Lewis & Bockius.

Zhou, a capital markets and general corporate law specialist, represents issuers and underwriters on IPOs as well as counsels on foreign direct investments in China. He also advises on post-IPO compliance issues, annual compliance, M&A, bond issuance and placements.

“Roger brings valuable experience and insight to our regional and global client base. He will be a key member of our team as we further build our business in Greater China,” said Stephen Mok, Eversheds’ Asia head of corporate, in a statement.

Zhou’s arrival means Eversheds Sutherland now has 16 partners in Hong Kong.
