Established in 1992, Sullivan & Cromwell’s Hong Kong office serves as a strategic point for significant transactions that involve Greater China and Asia Pacific companies or assets. The Firm also advises clients on significant cross-border transactions in the rest of Asia and elsewhere in the world.
Leveraging our deep insight of the Greater China and international markets as well as our resources around the world, we offer tailored advice to meet clients’ commercial and business objectives in mergers and acquisitions, capital markets, corporate finance, credit and leveraged finance, special situations, restructuring, private equity and project development and finance matters.
With nearly 30 years on-the-ground experience, S&C has been involved in numerous precedent-setting transactions in Greater China, including the first H-share listing by a Chinese company, the first Yankee bond offering by a Chinese state-owned company, the first-ever merger of two SEC-registered Chinese companies and the first-ever private sector merger between two Chinese companies.
We have a dedicated, highly skilled team of lawyers in S&C’s Hong Kong and Beijing offices, who work as one integrated team to provide U.S., Hong Kong and English law advice to clients in Greater China, the Asia-Pacific region and around the world. Well trained as generalists within broad practice areas, our multilingual lawyers are familiar with navigating the challenges to bridge the cultural, language and legal gaps among different parties.
