The firm has substantial experience and expertise in handling capital markets and corporate finance matters.
With countless corporate finance and securities transactions done by our partners and lawyers over the past years who are consistently being recognised as market leaders in this area, we represent issuers, listed companies, investment banks and funds on IPOs, secondary issues, bonds and convertible bonds offering, private placements, rights issues, privatisations and re-financings.
Our founding partners have always been at the forefront of the market and have participated a number of significant and landmark capital markets transactions in the last 20 years, including, among others, the reverse listing of Pacific Century CyberWorks through the reverse takeover of Tricom (“Deal of the Year 1999”, AsiaLaw Profiles), pioneering the listings of the first batch of Chinese privately-owned enterprises as “red chips” on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, the IPO of Mongolian Mining Corporation, the first Mongolian enterprise listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, and the IPO of CVM Minerals, the first Chapter 18 mining company IPO in Hong Kong.
We enjoy excellent working relationships with regulatory authorities such as the Stock Exchange and the Securities & Futures Commission. The depth of our working relationship with the regulatory authorities is such that we understand their work methods so as to get the job done on a highly professional, efficient and effective manner.
