Ashurst has strengthened its financial regulation offering with the hire of a partner from HWL Ebsworth.

Hong-Viet Nguyen is a specialist in consumer credit with over 15 years of experience. In addition to financial services regulation matters, she has tackled associated areas of financial crime, privacy law and consumer protection.

Her client base includes leading banks and corporates.

“We are very pleased Hong-Viet has joined our Australian financial regulation practice. She brings a high level of specialisation that will complement our global team exceptionally well,” said Jamie Ng, who co-leads Ashurst’s finance, funds and restructuring practice. “Hong-Viet will play a key role in strengthening client service and maintaining Ashurst's position as a leading advisor to financial institutions on complex regulatory matters. Hong-Viet has an excellent track record building client relationships.”

Ashurst noted that Nguyen’s inclusion in the partnership bolsters the firm’s ability to support its expanding risk advisory consultancy arm.

“Hong-Viet is a highly talented leader in the market segment with impressive client relationship skills. Her contribution to the growth of our offering will be critical as we accelerate the expansion of our innovative, award-winning, global legal and consulting services capabilities to provide the highest level of service for our clients,” finreg global head Jonathan Gordon said. “Financial regulation is a strength for the firm and her appointment reflects our commitment to growing this capability not only in Australia, but also globally.”

Nguyen said that she was looking forward to optimising Ashurst’s global network in her practice.

“I am thrilled to join Ashurst and look forward to working with the Ashurst team on a range of domestic and cross-border matters during an exciting period of growth in the firm's financial regulation practice,” she said. “I am excited by the opportunity to leverage Ashurst's collaborative global platform, strong client-centric model and top tier status to deliver exceptional outcomes for client.”

Nguyen will operate from Ashurst’s Sydney office.
