Lex Mundi is pleased to announce the appointment of Daniel Himpson as Head of Business Development and Strategy for Asia-Pacific.
Daniel has significant experience facilitating large, multijurisdictional projects and has particularly relevant experience in China. He will play a key role in driving Lex Mundi’s strategic initiatives in the region to strengthen the competitiveness of member firms and support coordinated, cross-border advice for clients.
Daniel is based in Shanghai, and originally hails from the UK where he earned a BEng from the University of Bristol, UK. He speaks Mandarin and has worked in China since 2012, where he held management positions with ManpowerGroup and most recently was part of the Greater China business development team at Hogan Lovells. Lex Mundi’s Business Development team works with the network’s top-tier member firms across 100+ countries and with senior in-house counsel to develop resources to address major cross-border legal challenges. Carl Anduri, President of Lex Mundi, commented, “This appointment rounds out our global team and builds on Lex Mundi’s ability to support clients doing business across Asia, as well as to connect general counsel based in Asia with critical support in other regions of the world.” “The APAC region is obviously a major driver of investment and growth globally, but the complexities of it make our deep footprint especially valuable for clients,” added Eric Staal, Lex Mundi’s Vice President of Business Development. Daniel explained his decision to join Lex Mundi: “Lex Mundi has a unique business model with innovative approaches to supporting member firms and clients in the rapidly changing market for corporate legal services. I am very pleased to have this opportunity to be a part of that.”
