DLA Piper taps Australian, HK team for hyperscale data centre

DLA Piper has fielded a cross-border team to advice on a US$150m hyperscale data centre in Hong Kong being developed by AirTrunk.

The firm’s cross-practice team was headed by Melbourne-based, Hong Kong-qualified partner Andrew Fisken. He was supported by Hong Kong partners May Ng, Susheela Rivers, and Scott Thiel, as well as special counsel Kurt Tiam.

DLA Piper has been a long-time partner of AirTrunk, a Singapore-based company that also has data centres in Sydney, Melbourne, and Singapore.

“Having supported AirTrunk on its journey from start-up to one of the Asia Pacific region's fastest growing hyperscale data centre operators, I am delighted to see them add Hong Kong to their rapidly expanding regional footprint,” said Shane Bilardi, AirTrunk relationship partner.

Fisken said that the firm is well-placed to act on transactions such as AirTrunk’s new Hong Kong data centre.

“DLA Piper has a leading practice in this sector in Hong Kong,” he said. “With our deep cross-border pool of talent we are ideally placed to deliver on these projects in the Asia Pacific.”

Fisken said that the firm looks forward to supporting AirTrunk on its further expansion in the region.
