What the team is known for

Versatile group recognised for its deft handling of a range of transactional mandates, including acquisitions, disposals, joint ventures and strategic partnerships. Outbound work is a specialism, particularly US-China deals, where the team works closely with its international network. Especially proficient in deals involving leveraged financing and private equity elements and is frequently sought out for take-privates. Particularly active on transactions relating to the TMT sector.

Notable practitioners

An impressed source endorses Charles Ching as a "smart and commercial" partner, who is "able to explain issues simply and clearly to Chinese clients" and "is fully comfortable in using both Mandarin and English" to "bridge the cultural gap" in cross-border transactions. He handles a range of transactional mandates, including joint ventures, take-privates and spin-offs.

New entry to the rankings Chris Welty wins praise from clients for his "insightful knowledge of precedent transactions and attention to detail" and for being "very comfortable but strong when facing the opposite side." He advises on a broad range of M&A and private equity mandates, with experience in handling spin-offs, take-privates and minority investments.

Henry Ong advises on acquisitions, investments and disposals for international corporations and private equity investors, as well as acting for domestic companies on strategic partnerships. "He can always think two to three steps ahead," observes an impressed client.

Interviewees describe Timothy Gardner as a "good operator" who brings his "good business sense and sound judgement" to transactional mandates. He consistently wins instructions on high-profile cross-border M&A transactions, often involving a private equity element.
