On the other hand, Wesseldine was a partner at Ropes & Gray for four years before joining King & Spalding in 2017. His career focuses on the following areas:

  • Special situation investments
  • Distressed and restructuring transactions
  • International credit funds
  • Financial institutions
  • Special senior loan
  • Subordinated credit investors
  • Private investors in multi-tranche and uni-tranche capital investment

“With the addition of Mark Wesseldine and David Kirkland to our existing Debt Finance bench in key markets such as Hong Kong, Singapore, Beijing, and Tokyo, we position White & Case as the only major law firm with a leading, specialised private credit function in Asia Pacific,” Eugene Man, White & Case partner and head of the Debt Finance and Restructuring practice for Asia Pacific stated.
