To some, Han Kun Law Offices's knowledge of the fintech space is 'second to none'. It is singled out for its 'highly commercial and tailor-made advice' which is 'not only able to meet regulatory and compliance requirement, but is also close to and often beyond the expectations of the clients'. The team recently assisted a consortium of sponsors including J.P. Morgan Securities and Credit Suisse (Hong Kong) with the Hong Kong listing of ZhongAn Online Property and Casualty Insurance, China's first internet-only insurer. It also acted for China Structural Reform Fund in its $105m investment in JD Finance, and handled regulatory and compliance matters relating to its new fintech products for Wecash, a Chinese fintech credit assessment solutions provider. Equity financing, M&A transactions for e-payment companies and initial coin offerings also feature in its recent mandates. The 'outstanding' Jun Wan is praised for his 'very quick feedback'. Wei Li is another name to note, particularly for private equity and venture capital transactions, as is Jun Zhu who focuses on financial regulatory matters and establishment of foreign financial institutions in China.

Zhong Lun Law Firm assists fintech sector clients with a broad range of corporate and financing transactions. Its client roster features financial institutions, financial technology companies, consumer finance companies and e-commerce companies such as LianJia Finance, Wheat Financial, Huaxia Credit Group and Zendai Finance. Xinyu Liu has notable experience in financial and foreign-related commercial litigation and arbitration, as well as advising on bitcoin and initial coin offering related regulatory matters.

DaHui Lawyers' highly active year included advising Xinyuan Real Estate on the regulatory and compliance issues related to its operation in Fyixin.com, a blockchain-powered real estate finance technology platform; acting for Qudian, a provider of online small consumer credit, in a series of financing and payment-related compliance matters; and handling an offshore financing investment in a major online financing company for a venture capital firm. Managing partner Richard Ma and Brendon Wu are the main contacts.

Global Law Office's expertise ranges from onshore, offshore and cross-border-structured transactions, to regulatory and compliance matters. The team recently assisted Shanghai Sina Financial Investment Management with its acquisition of a P2P company Beijing Jiubangwo Investment Consulting, and advised Shenzhen Qianhai Lianyirong Financial Services on a series of financing mandates. Recommended practitioners include Xin Zhang, Steven Yu and Amy Dai.

King & Wood Mallesons' practice benefits from the firm's full-service offering, and accordingly advises regulatory bodies and commercial entities on a broad range of matters. On the regulatory side, the team advises a range of regulatory bodies on compliance issues, and on the commercial entities front, it counts Alibaba, CreditEast Group and China Rapid Finance as main clients. Recent highlights saw a multi-jurisdictional team advising on a series of initial crypto token sales, assisting with the listing of fintech group in Hong Kong, and handling a pre-IPO restructuring for a leading Chinese internet lending company. The 'impressive' fintech group, jointly led by banking and finance lawyers Allen Zhong, Xiaoquan Yang and Jie Zhou, regularly works with Urszula McCormack who is based at the firm's Hong Kong office. Of counsel Leimin Yu and senior associate Fushen Chen are also recommended.
