Advising our clients on different opportunities and challenges of the industry.
As Hong Kong’s own world-class law firm, Deacons is well placed to overcome the toughest challenges confronting private M&As.
Private mergers and acquisitions might not face the scrutiny of public transactions, but they raise challenges that are just as significant. It helps if your lawyers understand your business priorities but can also appreciate your counterparty’s concerns, grasping where you can safely compromise and where you should not.
At Deacons, we have all the experience you would expect from Hong Kong’s leading independent law firm, plus a commitment to understanding our clients’ needs and providing practical advice to help them achieve their aims.
Our lawyers are experienced in advising on all aspects of private M&A for an extensive and sophisticated client base that includes local and international companies, private equity and other investment funds, and leading financial institutions.
We also regularly advise clients on various forms of pre-IPO investment (and divestment on IPO), including subscription of convertible bonds and preference shares, and as to compliance with the guidance issued by the Stock Exchange on pre-IPO investment.
