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. Led by partners with deep experience in the region, we provide substantive Hong Kong, U.S. and U.K. legal advice on a wide range of industries including real estate, lodging and gaming, entertainment and financial services.
We handle a wide variety of corporate and transactional matters, including mergers and acquisitions, fund formation, private equity, private equity real estate, venture capital, capital markets, foreign direct investment and joint ventures. While our practice is broad, we focus on cutting-edge and strategic transactions, industries and clients: renminbi funds and going-private transactions; the sports, entertainment and hospitality industries; and clients with strong global and/or Asian brand names. We represent multinationals investing and doing business in Asia, as well as Asian companies investing and doing business globally.
Our Hong Kong office also handles litigation and regulatory matters related to both Hong Kong and U.S. regulator schemes such as the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Ordinances and the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). We represent multinationals in litigations before the Hong Kong High Court and advise major Hong Kong and PRC-based companies doing business in the U.S. in litigation in the U.S. federal courts. Working closely with corporate and transactional lawyers, we provide regulatory and compliance advice to clients – particularly private equity funds and financial services firms.
The office’s composition reflects our clients: international, multidimensional and focused on connecting Asia with the rest of the world. Partners are leaders in their respective fields, and some of their transactions also have been recognized as market leading in the areas of M&A, private equity and investment funds.
