Within: Corporate (including M&A)

Dechert is active in high-profile domestic M&A and cross-border transactions. As part of an expansion of the firm's corporate platform globally, the hires of Xiao Yong, counsel Nicholas A. Molan and associate Jason Wu (all arrivals from Vinson & Elkins LLP in March 2017) have seen the firm step up its capabilities in energy sector deals. Yong and Wu advised TerraPower LLC on the formation of a joint venture in China with China National Nuclear Corporation, which is intended to develop Travelling Wave Reactor technology that promotes the growth of clean energy; this is the first civil nuclear corporation involving the US and China. Stephen Chan's corporate experience spans industries such as healthcare, media, real estate, metals and mining and financial services. Chan was the lead adviser to China Financial Services Holdings on the $139m acquisition of certain loan portfolio and equity interests of three Chinese companies from The Bank of East Asia and Credit Gain Finance (a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Bank of East Asia). Another highlight involved advising the same client on its acquisition of Brilliant Star Capital from Value Partners Group for $41m. Chan co-heads the practice with David Cho, who is sought for his expertise in Asia-US transactions.
