Independent Hong Kong firm Tanner De Witt delivers 'professional and efficient service' across a wide ambit of corporate matters. Its diverse practice covers M&A, joint ventures, corporate reorganisations, private equity transactions, shareholder agreements, franchising agreements, distribution arrangements and various other issues. Although the firm is primarily known for acting for middle-market clients, its first-rate reputation also sees it advise a number of household names, such as Facebook and Philips Electronics. Under the joint leadership of Eddie Look and Tim Drew, there has been a significant uptick in mandates, and the practice has been further buoyed by the recent arrival of Pàdraig Walsh from Bird & Bird. Walsh has particular experience of acting for clients in technology-related industries, such as fintech, insurtech, regtech and cleantech. The firm also acts for clients active in other areas, such as electronics, fashion, hotels and financial services. River Stone, who made partner in November 2017, is a fluent speaker of English, Cantonese, Mandarin and Shanghainese. Jan Möller, who qualified in the Netherlands in 2008, has practised as a foreign lawyer in Hong Kong since 2012.
