Established in 2008, our Hong Kong office provides clients doing business in Hong Kong, China and the rest of Asia with advice on local matters as well as access to our global platform. Focused on transactional work in a wide range of industries including real estate, entertainment and financial services and led by partners with deep experience in the region, we offer our clients global and Asia-specific products. Our lawyers provide advice on Hong Kong, U.S. and UK laws.
We handle a wide variety of corporate and transactional matters, including mergers and acquisitions, fund formation, private equity, venture capital, capital markets, foreign direct investment and the establishment of joint ventures. While we have a broad based practice, we focus on cutting-edge and strategic transactions, industries and clients: RMB funds and going private transactions; sports, entertainment and hospitality industries; and clients with strong global and/or Asian brand names. We represent both multinationals investing and doing business in Asia, as well as Asian companies investing and doing business around the world.
The composition of the office reflects our clients: international, multi-dimensional and focused on connecting Asia with the rest of the world. Partners in the Hong Kong office are leaders in their respective fields. Transactions they have completed have also been recognized as market-leading in the areas of M&A, equity capital markets and debt capital markets. Chambers Global has recognized our Hong Kong team for being part of a "well-integrated network" with "strong complementary abilities." The partners in our Hong Kong office are "responsive" and "understand a businessman's viewpoint." According to IFLR1000, clients have praised our M&A team for always knowing "how to identify legal and business problems well in advance," and always having a solution ready - in short, according to one client, "Proskauer acted like our partner." Proskauer Hong Kong is further noted by corporate clients for having a "very experienced team of counsels" and is "able to provide the clients with different types of consultancy in different jurisdictions."
We believe in building relationships and adding value. Our lawyers combine their broad range of legal skills and excellent work product with dedicated client service and practical business advice.
