Sharon Hartline - White & Case

Within: Investment funds

White & Case has an enviable private funds offering, which makes it a major force in Asia. Practice head Sharon Hartline, who is praised for her 'first-class funds knowledge', has spent the majority of her 20-plus years in private practice in the region. She has a strong track record advising Asia-based fund sponsors on forming and launching various structures, such as private equity buyout funds, hedge funds, hybrid funds, real estate funds, distressed debt and credit funds. Hartline also has experience of acting for a variety of investors, including sovereign wealth funds, high-net-worth individuals and family offices. Anthony Wong, who has been practising for more than a decade, is another name to note in the group. A core feature of the firm's funds offering is that it is able to  provide US law advice and understand the needs of US taxable, ERISA and US tax-exempt investors. In addition, it leverages its strengths in areas such as M&A and finance to assist fund managers with their business operational issues. The firm's first-rate reputation in the private funds sphere ensures that it continues to receive a strong flow of work from existing clients, and also win mandates from new clients; its roster includes such names as Arkkan Capital, eShang Redwood, Orion Partners and Qatar Investment Authority. Hartline recently acted for longstanding client PAG in the final closing of its Asia Loan Fund III.
