“Deacons impresses with its ‘strong industry acumen’ and ‘professionalism’”. 

Legal 500 Asia Pacific

Fast, effective and practical advice on private transactions

As Hong Kong’s own world-class law firm, Deacons is well placed to overcome the toughest challenges confronting private M&A.

Private mergers and acquisitions might not take place in the glare of publicity, but they raise challenges that are just as significant. It helps if your advisors understand your business priorities but can also appreciate your counterparty’s concerns, grasping where you can safely compromise and where you can’t. 

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.

We 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. Our work includes: 

  • All kinds of M&A, including private company acquisitions and disposals in Hong Kong, PRC and other jurisdictions across the Asia Pacific region;
  • Private equity and venture capital investments and divestments;
  • Management Buy Outs (MBOs) and Leveraged Buy Outs (LBOs);
  • General strategic advice covering related issues, such as acquisition financing and post-merger restructuring. 

Our proven ability to handle large and complex transactions, providing practical solutions promptly and efficiently is widely acknowledged. We deliver concise, relevant and timely assistance, not just with all aspects of corporate law, but all related company and commercial matters, helping to ensure that your transactions run smoothly, and to facilitate your business afterwards.

If you would like to discuss how we could help your company, we would be delighted to hear from you.
