Ropes & Gray announced that Lum Chune Loong has rejoined the firm’s private investment funds practice as counsel in Hong Kong.
Lum represents Asia and China-focused fund sponsors in the formation, structuring and operation of private equity funds, as well as sovereign investors and institutional investors in their fund commitments and transactions.
His experience includes counselling fund sponsors, investment advisers and asset managers in the structure, launch, capitalization and ongoing operations of private investment funds, including buyout funds, venture capital funds, joint venture funds, credit funds, evergreen funds and auxiliary funds.
“Ropes & Gray’s private investment funds practice stands out for its global reach, with an Asia team with great knowledge of the region’s investment landscape,” said Matthew Judd, co-leader of Ropes & Gray’s private investment funds practice. “Chune Loong’s return will significantly strengthen the practice’s ability to serve sponsors and institutional investors in China and across Asia.”
Lum rejoined the firm from Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom. “Having practised in his home city of Singapore, and with extensive time in mainland China as well as Hong Kong and New York, Chune Loong’s deep regional knowledge will be of great advantage to our China and Southeast Asia-based clients,” said Dan Anderson, managing partner of Ropes &Gray’s Hong Kong office.
