Bingham Taps Thiha Tun For London Office

Sep 3 2013 | 11:00am ET

Bingham McCutchen has tapped Thiha Tun as a partner in its London office.

Tun joins Bingham’s investment management practice group from Herbert Smith Freehills, where he represented investment funds, investment managers and other participants in the funds industry. He works with private equity, real estate, infrastructure and hedge funds.
“Thiha’s arrival strengthens our global funds practice and enhances our ability to provide clients with a full range of investment management capabilities across continents,” said Bingham investment management practice group leader Roger Joseph, noting that Tun will work closely with partner John Holton, who relocated his international funds practice to the London office from Boston in 2011. “Thiha has built a strong practice that will augment our growing international funds and financial regulatory capabilities.”

The announcement follows Bingham's recent addition of  seven lawyers to the investment management practice group in Tokyo. In early May, Christopher Wells and Tomoko Fuminaga joined as partners in Bingham’s investment management group along with five additional lawyers from White & Case.

Tun will join an existing investment management and regulatory team in London, added James Roome, London office managing partner. His arrival will complement Holton’s international funds practice in London as well as the work done by partners John Clark in listed funds, Helen Marshall in U.K. regulation and enforcement, and Chris Leonard in U.K. regulation and funds, working closely with Bingham’s investment management team in the U.S. and Asia.

Bingham has approximately 1,000 lawyers in 14 offices in the U.S., Europe and Asia.
