Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom has named Audrey Sokoloff as co-head of the firm’s Asia Pacific practice. A partner in Skadden’s Tokyo office, Sokoloff will join Hong Kong-based Alan Schiffman in managing the firm’s six Asia Pacific offices.

According to LegalWeek, Skadden’s Asia-Pacific practice was previously headed by U.S.-based partners Michael Gisser and Phyllis Korff in addition to Schiffman. The firm has since decided to supervise the practice from Asia rather than domestically.

“The development of the practice in Asia means that it makes sense to base the leadership here,” Sokoloff told Legal Week. “I will be coordinating and providing oversight to our offices in Asia, Europe and the Americas and am excited about Skadden’s continued growth in the Asia region.”


Sokoloff will also continue to head the Tokyo office and its Asia-Pacific real estate and investment finance teams. She has been in Asia since 2008.

Skadden has more than 100 lawyers in the Asia-Pacific region with offices in Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo.
