PRC firms in Hong Kong in Hong Kong

Fangda Partners

A range of Chinese and multinational corporates rely on Fangda Partners' Hong Kong team for the breadth of its transactional and dispute resolution capabilities. Corporate and capital market deals are at the core of the firm’s transactional offering, with the team guiding clients through the intricacies of cross-border debt mandates, private equity deals, panda bond transactions, high-value M&A work, and energy projects for both private and public entities. Another significant aspect of the practice is dispute resolution, where the team has recently been active in representing clients in the pharmaceutical, manufacturing, and electronics sectors, often before the Court of Appeal. Taking the lead in numerous of these listings and global matters is Colin Law, a dual-qualified partner in the UK and Hong Kong. Law’s expertise extends to the biotech sector, and he is frequently involved in a substantial volume of public M&A and take-private matters. Christine Chen offers ‘solid advice on standard transactions as well as ad hoc complex questions’ related to all aspects of debt capital markets transactions, in addition to excelling in various financial regulatory matters and US securities law-related mandates. In the energy infrastructure sphere, Michael Tam‘s leadership stands out. Tam’s role as head, combined with his presence in Hong Kong and Shenzhen, well-positions him to effectively handle development and project financing mandates. Tam is supported by Joe Biqing Zhou , who has recently played a key role in landmark Hong Kong and Chinese infrastructure projects. Fangda’s litigation arm is guided by founding partner Peter Yuen, whose expertise extends seamlessly to handling conventional corporate and shareholder disputes. Yuen’s capabilities also encompass international arbitration proceedings, especially those entwined with Chinese complexities. Olga Boltenko brings specialist strength in the area of investment protection and related arbitrations, and has acted as legal counsel in investor-state disputes under the auspices of the Permanent Court of Arbitration.
