Advising our clients on different opportunities and challenges of the industry.
Hong Kong is a major part of the private equity landscape in Asia. Working with an extensive and sophisticated client base that includes local and international private equity investors and companies, our lawyers understand that every deal is different, and every business has its own unique culture and priorities. At the same time, common themes connect all successful transactions.
Deacons’ private equity lawyers are experienced in offering practical, timely and comprehensive advice on all kinds of M&A, including private company acquisitions and disposals in Hong Kong, Mainland China and other jurisdictions across the Asia Pacific region; private equity and venture capital investments and divestments; management buyouts (MBOs) and leveraged buyouts (LBOs); and general strategic advice covering related issues, such as acquisition financing and pre- or post-acquisition restructuring. We 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. We advise private equity firms in full spectrum of legal matters from fund formation, human resources, data privacy and compliance issues.
