Paul Hastings has hired Shaun Wu from Kobre & Kim as the firm’s investigations and white-collar defence practice partner in Hong Kong.

He often represents multinational corporations in investigations and compliance reviews involving China with a focus on the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), bribery, fraud, misconduct and other enforcement matters.

“Shaun’s strong reputation and global experiences will be a boon to our clients whom are increasingly dealing with cross-border litigation and investigation issues in several of our key markets. Investing significantly in our leading Investigations and White Collar Defence practice across Asia, Europe, Latin American and the United States continues to be a focus for us,” said Chairman of Paul Hastings Seth Zachary.

The hire of Wu follows other recent hires in the investigations and white-collar defence practice at the firm including Nicola Bonucci, Jonathan Drimmer, Matt Herrington, Tom Best and Peter Axelrod.
