About Our Hong Kong Office

The Hong Kong* office focuses on a full range of corporate, capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, private equity, energy, infrastructure and project finance, real estate and investment finance, restructuring and insolvency, and structured finance transactions. The office also is the headquarters of the firm’s Asia-Pacific international arbitration and litigation practice. With combined U.S., Hong Kong and English law capabilities, we provide integrated, comprehensive services on a wide variety of matters.

We were one of the first Wall Street law firms to establish a Hong Kong law corporate practice and have many years of experience working as an integrated Hong Kong-U.S. team completing some of Hong Kong’s most complex initial public offerings and mergers and acquisitions.

Hong Kong-based attorneys often work in tandem with our attorneys in Beijing, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, Tokyo, the United States and Europe to serve our clients in Asia, handling matters in China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam, among others.

Our clients in Hong Kong include major multinational corporations, leading investment banks and commercial banks, private equity firms, investors and developers in a broad spectrum of industries. We have represented our clients on many of the highest profile deals in Asia.

We ranked as a Tier 1 firm for Corporate/M&A in Asia Pacific by Chambers Asia 2015 and a Tier 1 firm for M&A in China and Hong Kong by Asian Legal Business 2015.
