Within: Corporate (including M&A)

Mayer Brown has a long-established presence in Greater China and, backed by the resources of its wider global network, is well-placed to advise PRC-based companies and multinationals on domestic and cross-border transactions. Its team is led by Jeckle Chiu, who worked alongside senior associate Mindy Ho to advise Tsingtao Brewery on the sale of a 19.99% stake in the company by Japanese brewer Asahi for $941m. Another key figure is Mark Uhrynuk, who worked with senior associate Stanley Tan to advise Principal Financial Group on its proposed acquisition of CIMB-Principal Asset Management Group and CIMB-Principal Islamic Asset Management from joint venture partner CIMB Group. Also recommended is Chester Wong, who has expertise in public takeovers governed by the Hong Kong's listing rules and takeovers code, and various corporate governance and compliance issues concerning Hong Kong-listed companies. Elsewhere, the firm is looking to capture more China outbound work, and has identified deals connected with the Belt and Road Initiative as one of the areas of opportunity for the M&A practice.
