We have a long-standing presence in Asia: we opened our Hong Kong office in 1974. Our Beijing office, which opened in September 2009, is a natural extension of our practice in the region. By combining the strength of our own offices with that of the leading law firms in the region, we are able to provide a pan-Asian legal service of the highest quality.
Our key experience includes advising:
BHP Billiton on a proposed production joint venture with Rio Tinto in relation to the companies' Western Australian iron ore assets.
UBS, Credit Suisse, CICC and Goldman Sachs in relation to the US$3.1 billion initial public offering and Hong Kong listing of China Pacific Insurance.
Fuji Electric in relation to the European Commission's investigation into an alleged cartel in the Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) sector.
