TYSONS, VA.— Two experienced transactional lawyers have joined Womble Bond Dickinson’s Northern Virginia office.

Siaw Ching Lee joined Womble Bond Dickinson as a senior associate from Sullivan & Cromwell LLP in New York.  At her previous firm, Lee primarily guided banks and other financial institutions in mergers and acquisitions, stock and asset purchases and other complex commercial transactions.  In addition, she advised these clients in a wide range of federal and state regulatory matters, including compliance with Federal Reserve, FDIC and OCC regulations.

“Siaw Ching brings to our firm from one of the preeminent practices in the country a breadth and depth of experience in complex transactions,” said Gary Nunes, Managing Partner of Womble Bond Dickinson’s Northern Virginia office.  “She will apply her considerable skills and substantial experience to our thriving local M&A practice as well as to our firm’s strong financial institutions practice.”

Also joining the Womble Bond Dickinson Northern Virginia office is Joshua Hess.  Hess is currently a senior associate based in the firm’s Atlanta office.  He advises public and private companies and private equity funds at all stages of the deal process.  He has led or been a key member of project and deal teams spanning numerous industry sectors and time zones.

“While continuing to support the firm clients that he represented from our Atlanta office, Joshua will very quickly get plugged into our local client base -- we expect him to be an integral member and leader of our active Mid-Atlantic-based transactional teams” said Keith Mendelson, Northern Virginia-based Practice Group Leader for Womble Bond Dickinson’s 90 plus attorney Corporate & Securities Practice.
 
Mendelson continued: “The additions of Siaw Ching and Joshua will further strengthen our corporate and M&A practice in the Mid-Atlantic.  While our clients are often national and international, from our Washington, DC, Baltimore and Northern Virginia offices, we remain “close to home” representing primarily technology and government services companies on a broad range of mergers, acquisitions, licensing and other transactions.”
 
Mr. Hess and Ms. Lee are not licensed to practice law in Virginia. Their activities are directly supervised by an attorney licensed to practice law in Virginia.
