Private equity

Within: Private equity

Although it lacks the heritage in the private equity space (and thereby the ability to leverage work from institutional sponsor clients) that some of the higher ranked international firms have, Mayer Brown JSM has deep roots in the Hong Kong market and has successfully leveraged this to gain substantial traction, particularly among mid-market Asia-based funds. The team guides clients through the lifecycle of a deal from fund formation and subsequent investments through to exits, as well as its ability to add value by virtue of its full-service offering including expertise in tax and employment. David Ellis regularly handles real estate-related private equity transactions and recently advised US-based private equity firm AEW on its $145.2m acquisition of Continental Place, an office building in Hong Kong. With experience in the Hong Kong, UK and US markets, Mark Uhrynuk is able to provide significant flexibility on deals and is handling an increased amount of work for TPG Capital.
