Playing significant roles in regional cross-border deals involving major international players, White & Case LLP‘s China banking and finance team is widely regarded as a go-to practice for debt finance transactions in Asia. Executive partner of the Beijing office, David Li, is highly rated by the Greater China market for major financing mandates. Shanghai-based senior consultant Frank Shu regularly advises on the financing of privatisations of Chinese companies and large-scale cross-border property acquisition and financing transactions.
