White & Case adds restructuring expert in Hong Kong
White & Case has recently added Sophie Lyall as a partner in the Firm's Financial Restructuring and Insolvency group in Hong Kong.
Lyall has more than 15 years of experience, and she specializes in all aspects of restructuring, insolvency and special situations matters, with a long-standing focus on both North and South Asia. Prior to joining White & Case, Lyall worked at Ashurst.
Tom Lauria, the head of White & Case’s global financial restructuring and insolvency practice, addressed in a press release that the global economy has now entered a period of significant structural change and we anticipate a pronounced increase in large, cross-border restructurings and insolvencies. And the addition of Lyall will be an important boost to provide comprehensive support to clients in the difficult phase of restructuring.
This is the latest partner-level hire made by White & Case after the firm added Wilfred Ho to its Hong Kong office.
