Baker McKenzie hires media and entertainment expert from Latham

Baker McKenzie has hired Lex Guo as partner in its Hong Kong office. Guo joined from Latham & Watkins, where he was a counsel and had worked from the firm’s Hong Kong and Shanghai offices.

Guo is a media and entertainment expert, having counselled many leading Chinese and international entertainment and media companies in co-financing, co-production and licensing of film and television titles, cross-border strategic cooperation, and acquisitions. He also has abundant experience in advising Chinese tech companies on the acquisition and distribution of content on both traditional and new media platforms, video games development, as well as production and exploitation of e-sport events.

Outside of law, he is a host and producer of several music radio programs and radio shows.

"(Guo’s) joining signals our commitment in … assisting our clients as they transform their business operations and be ready to rebound in the post-pandemic economy." Steven Sieker, managing partner of Baker McKenzie's Hong Kong office, said.

Baker McKenzie made several lateral hires in Hong Kong recently – it hired leveraged finance expert Kenneth Ching and private equity expert Derek Poon in May and June, respectively.
