We are pleased to report that we have achieved a strong result in the newest edition of the Legal 500 Asia Pacific, a leading directory that provides law firm rankings based on client feedback, transactional evidence and peer commentary.
In 2015’s edition, we are pleased to retain our first tier ranking for Investment Funds. Our financial services team was described as: “The ‘outstanding’ Deacons is ‘very aware of what is happening in the market’. Taylor Hui and the ‘seasoned’ Alwyn Li are recommended for their QFII and RQFII funds expertise, and Jeremy Lam is a ‘go-to expert’ for authorised funds matters. Mandatory Provident Funds (MPF) expert Susan Gordon and hedge fund specialist consultant Scott Carnachan are also recommended.
The editorial represented our private equity offering as: “Deacons’ ‘excellent’, ‘very knowledgeable’, and ‘clear and focused’ team is better known for private equity fund formation, but is gaining traction in downstream work. Robert Woll ‘goes out of his way to see things from the client’s perspective’.”
Our compliance and licensing practice also received praise: “Jane McBride heads Deacons’ dedicated in-house SFC licensing and compliance team, which has an impressive asset management and investment fund client following, and is widely recognised as a leader in advising on the sector’s engagement with the SFC.”
