Sidley Austin announced that Allan Wardrop joined the firm’s Hong Kong office as a partner in its global finance practice.
Wardrop was formerly with Hogan Lovells. He represents private equity sponsors, hedge funds, asset managers, and commercial and investment banks concerning mezzanine, special situation financings and investments.
He also has experience advising senior secured creditors in leveraged and acquisition finance transactions as well as debt restructurings, and possesses a broad knowledge of corporate lending, cross-border transactions, property financings, and direct and alternative lending by funds.
“Allan’s high standing in the special situations market and with senior secured lenders is impressive, and especially significant given Hong Kong’s status as a major global financial hub,” said Constance Choy, managing partner for China.
