Tokyo Hirose

Hisao Hirose has gone ecto-house at Citibank to join Latham & Watkins' Tokyo office. He is famous for advising Cable & Wireless' hostile takeover of IDC Corporation, the first such takeover in Japan's history. He also enjoys aircraft finance. (Incidentally, we are well aware that his name is not pronounced high-rohz. Just so you think better of us.)
