Mourant

Since its launch in Hong Kong in 2011, Mourant has grown considerably and now includes five partners that are active across corporate, finance and litigation offshore-related matters. The 'excellent' Danielle Roman has broad-ranging finance expertise, including on fund financing, and in this area has 'been instrumental in developing the product in Asia'. Roman is regularly at the forefront of the team's highest-profile matters, and in collaboration with Claire Fulton (whose 'experience in the leveraged finance space means she is well aware of the issues and pressures felt by onshore lawyers on leveraged buyouts') recently advised Goldman Sachs as Cayman counsel on financing Platinum Equity’s take-private of Fischer Tech, by way of a Singapore scheme of arrangement. The 'very impressive' Paul Christopher has a focus on private equity transactions, and recently advised I Squared Capital Advisors on the $1.86bn acquisition of Hutchison Global Communications. The 'very responsive, hardworking and approachable' Jessica Lee and the 'detail-oriented and commercial' Paul Trewartha were also involved in this deal, and are key members of an associate pool that also includes the 'very responsive' Peter Vas and Kimberley Leng, the latter of whom is an integral part of the insolvency team led by Shaun Folpp. Other clients include CVC, Ping An Bank, CSIC Leasing and CTBC Bank. Head of banking and finance Simon Lawrenson is another name to note.
