Established in 1999, Sullivan & Cromwell’s Beijing office serves as a critical point to connect Chinese companies to the international market as well as international clients to the local market. The Firm was among the first top-tier Wall Street firms to have an office in mainland China, further strengthening our already-expansive Asia practice.
S&C’s Beijing and Hong Kong lawyers work as one team to provide U.S., Hong Kong and English law advice to clients in Greater China, the Asia-Pacific region, and around the world. Effectively leveraging the global expertise and resources of the Firm, lawyers in the Beijing office often take the lead in managing multi-jurisdictional teams on transactions that have a China focus.
We have a long history of devising innovative structures to address demanding regulatory and policy requirements in China and elsewhere in Asia and have been working closely with clients with respect to the array of regulations in the region that present significant challenges to both international investors and Chinese enterprises.
S&C is able to guide clients through complex cross-border mergers and acquisitions, private equity transactions, securities offerings and corporate financings as well as complex project development and financing matters. We have been involved in numerous unique transactions in Greater China, including the first-ever merger of two Securities and Exchange Commission-registered Chinese companies and the first-ever private sector merger between two Chinese companies.
Sullivan & Cromwell is Proud to Celebrate 20 Years in China
