Shearman & Sterling fields a team with English, Hong Kong and US law expertise. It demonstrates strong capabilities in sophisticated and landmark debt offerings in Greater China and further afield in Asia, where it acts for governments, state-owned enterprises, corporate issuers and financial institutions. In 2017, Alan Yeung led a cross-office team that acted for the joint global coordinators, joint lead managers and joint bookrunners on China Three Gorges' €650m green bonds issuance; this was the first-ever euro-denominated green bonds issuance by a Chinese company. Yeung also acted for BOCI Asia as the initial purchaser in China Huiyuan Juice Group's $150m notes offering and subsequent $50m tap offering, constituting the company's first international bond offering. The firm has also acted as US counsel to New Metro Global (as well as to Future Land Holdings as the guarantor) on a series of high-yield debt offerings. CK Hutchison, JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley are other notable clients. Matthew Bersani is the global head of corporate finance, while Colin Law leads the capital markets team in Asia.
