Mark KnightSidley Austin LLP

Under the very effective stewardship of ‘dynamic duo’ Jifree Cader and Mark Knight, Sidley Austin LLP‘s ‘young and energetic‘ team has ‘excellent knowledge of the market’ and is ‘picking up challenging work across a number of jurisdictions’. No better is this illustrated than by the team’s work, alongside the Hong Kong office, on numerous high-profile offshore bond restructuring mandates for debtors in the Chinese real estate sector. Most notable of these matters is the firm’s ongoing work for China Evergrande Group on the highly complicated potential restructuring of its offshore debt.

Sidley Austin’s Restructuring team in Hong Kong, operating with Gordon Davidson and Matthew Sheridan at the helm, is supported by its strong outfit based in London led by Mark Knight and Jifree Cader. The firm has recently been increasingly active in the region and has been retained on major China property development offshore restructurings such as Evergrande and China Fortune Land Development.
