It’s a “big deal”

Multinational corporations (MNCs), investment banks, funds, PRC state-owned enterprises, local and international businesses and individuals gravitate to Hong Kong as the international hub for the world’s fastest growing region. That’s why we’ve been here, on-the-ground, helping companies like Telstra, BG Group, PetroChina and China Telecom realise their legal & commercial business opportunities both in Hong Kong and across the region.

Our team of corporate lawyers have top-class legal expertise and proven strategies for our clients to make successful investments. We’ve been involved in some of the region’s largest and most complex M&A transactions, helping turn market and regulatory developments into opportunities, applying a “made to measure” approach that suits deals of all sizes.

Unique expertise

In a cross-border dominated market, our international expertise, the depth of our experience in Asia and our strong PRC-qualified team marks us out when it comes to advising you on mergers and acquisitions (M&A) transactions in the region.

This experience, coupled with being one of the few international legal networks permitted to practise PRC law, means that we are uniquely positioned to advise clients on China inbound investments.

We regularly advise PRC businesses investing throughout the region and MNC’s looking to invest in China specifically, or Asia more generally. We offer a one-stop-shop for legal advice on all aspects of corporate, M&A, private equity and commercial law.

Our expertise in corporate, M&A, private equity and commercial law includes advising on:

  • Public company acquisitions including takeovers, hostile bids and privatisations
  • Major corporate reconstructions, including demergers and private M&As (including private equity transactions and liquidation sales)
  • PRC inbound and outbound investments
  • Management and leveraged buyouts
  • Exit strategies
  • Joint ventures and strategic alliances
  • Corporate restructuring
  • Commercial agreement
  • Corporate services.
"The M&A team is a cut above the average client service in Hong Kong. [Their] benchmark is extremely high at the associate and junior levels, and they have a better culture on the bench as well - a good working team. They are good value for money, better than some of the magic circle firms."
