Mayer Brown's group is led by Jason Elder, and includes highly respected partners Billy Au and Jeckle Chiu. Equally strong in issuer- and underwriter-side work, the group excels in global offerings and Hong Kong listings, spin-offs, right issuances and various other equity capital markets transactions. In 2017, Au and senior associate Jeremy Hsu advised Risecomm Group Holdings on its $27m listing and global offering on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. In addition, Au and Carmen Yuen assisted Jiayuan International Group with a placing of existing shares and subscription for new shares, which raised circa HK$1.18bn in gross proceeds. The team also advised the same client on a subsequent HK$1.4bn placing and top-up. Another highlight involved acting for China Overseas Land & Investment and China Overseas Property Holdings Limited (COPL) on COPL's spin-off and separate Hong Kong listing. The team also acts for issuers and underwriters on transactions further afield across Asia.
