Proskauer Rose LLP

Under Yuval Tal's leadership, Proskauer Rose LLP's Hong Kong team, which is a major generator of corporate deal activity for the firm globally, has seen a notable uptick in Asia outbound and intra-Asia transactions. The practice is noted for its highly specialised sector focus. One of the areas in which it stands out is hotels; it has particularly been at the forefront of headline deals involving combinations of Asian hotel brands with European and US ones. Tal and associate Vivian Ho recently worked alongside practitioners in the London office to advise Formosa International Hotels on the sale of the Regent Hotels and Resorts brand to InterContinental. In 2017, Tal and Ho acted for AccorHotels on its agreement to form a strategic partnership with Singapore-based Banyan Hotels. In the broader real estate arena, a recent highlight involved acting for Mori Building Real Estate Investment Advisory in the acquisition by JR Kyushu of a serviced apartment hotel in Bangkok from the Thai Government Pension Fund, and also the replacement of the operator of the hotel. Outside of real estate, the firm also acts for a number of private equity houses on their investments; Partners Group is one of the firm's clients. Elsewhere, the firm undertakes corporate work in the media and entertainment and healthcare industries. Jeremy Leifer and Ying Li are also recommended.

Proskauer Rose LLP focuses on private funds, and its work spans various asset classes, such as private equity buyout funds, venture capital funds and real estate funds. Its key contact in Hong Kong is senior counsel Lynn Chan, who assists general partners and limited partners with all issues associated with fund formation and management, co-investments and direct investments into funds. In addition, a notable trend has seen the firm become increasingly active in the nascent secondaries market in Asia. The funds practice has seen an uptick in mandates from Chinese funds clients, typically in the context of cross-border fund investments. Another cornerstone of work involves advising US-based clients on forming RMB funds. Chan co-heads the practice in Asia with Yong Ren in Beijing. Active clients include Ping An Insurance Overseas Holdings, Schroder Adveq, Creditease Wealth Management Limited and LGT Capital Partners.
