The Hong Kong office of global law firm K&L Gates has added Greg Heaton as a partner in its investment management practice.
With a focus on investment management and financial services regulation, Heaton advises investment managers as well as institutional trustees, custodians, and fund administrators on a broad range of fund formation, licensing, regulatory compliance, and securities law issues.
He previously worked in the Hong Kong office of the law firm Deacons; with the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission, where he drafted legislative amendments and a code of conduct for the licensing of credit rating agencies; and at the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.
“Greg has exceptional experience in an industry fraught with complex regulatory issues and in a regional market where institutional investment funds are seeking access,” says K&L Gates’ managing partner for Asia, David Tang. “Connecting with our leading global investment management practice, Greg is a welcome addition to the team in Hong Kong.”
K&L Gates is the largest fully integrated US-based law firm in the Asia Pacific region, serving clients through 11 offices and 400 lawyers across Asia and Australia.
Heaton is the fourth new partner to join K&L Gates’ Asia offices in 2014, with the firm also having added partners Takahiro Hoshino (commercial disputes) and Takahiro Tsumagari (real estate investment, development, and finance) in Tokyo as well as Singapore/Shanghai partner Siew Kam Boon (M&A and private equity) in recent weeks.
