What the team is known for

Recognised team that utilises the strengths of its Hong Kong and Beijing offices to advise on outbound acquisitions, as well as joint ventures and privatisations. Assists a broad array of clients ranging from TMT companies to retailers and clients in the financial services sector. Also regularly acts on private equity investments for both fund-raising entities and investors.

Strengths

"Their performance has been beyond superb. They are very technically skilled and business-savvy, and they show that they care about us and our business," according to a client, who explains: "I have come across many lawyers who give you a legal analysis and no practical solutions, but the Morgan Lewis team takes care of business and always has our back, which is paramount."

"The client service and commercial awareness are top notch," agrees another source, adding: "One of the reasons we chose them was because of their multiple locations; the service seemed seamless."

Work highlights

Acted for Warburg Pincus on its USD140 million investment in Gaosi Education Group.
