DLA Piper has appointed partner Matthew Glynn as head of the firm's intellectual property and technology (IPT) group in Asia and Paul Lee as partner and head of its finance and projects group in Hong Kong.

In his new role, Glynn will lead DLA's IPT practice in Asia, expanding his existing responsibilities which include the Middle East, South-Asia and Africa.

Glynn's team, which is part of the firm's global IPT group of over 420 lawyers, represents major government departments, leading global technology and communications companies, regulatory authorities, financial institutions, owners of well-known international brands and patents, multinational media and entertainment companies, internet service providers and e-business enterprises.

Previously the head of DLA's Middle East IPT practice and with over eight years of experience advising on major IPT deals across the Asia-Pacific region, Glynn brings with him market-leading expertise in the commercial and regulatory aspects of a range of IT and telecommunications transactions.

As part of DLA's Asia finance and projects group, Lee will work closely with clients across the Asia-Pacific as well as other regions to develop the firm's global and regional banking portfolio.

Lee's finance expertise includes complex cross-border financings, structured lending, acquisition financing, syndicated lending, project financing, receivables financing, convertible bonds and debt restructuring. He brings to DLA over 17 years of experience in banking related transactions.
