Drawing upon experts with significant restructuring and insolvency knowledge from within the firm’s broader dispute resolution and finance practices, White & Case advises IPs, corporates, banks, and funds, as stakeholders in Asia-related mandates, both in a restructuring and formal insolvency context. Melody Chan has very strong ties with many local IPs and Chinese financial institutions, and leveraging her broader commercial litigation skills, is noted for her expertise at handling pan-Asian enforcement matters. Eugene Man co-heads the team alongside Chan and in addition to his front-end bank financing expertise, also regularly picks up work on restructuring mandates in distressed credits. The team is also well-placed to handle multi-jurisdictional mandates by virtue of its far-reaching international network.
White & Case is noted for its experience handling large bank finance deals across Asia. At the forefront of the market for lender-side work, the practice has recently continued to strengthen its private equity sponsor/borrower financing capability. The practice has leveraged acquisition finance and high-yield experts in key financial hubs across Asia, as well as London and New York. Head of the Asia-Pacific banking and restructuring practices, Eugene Man is recommended for bank finance work. Baldwin Cheng is well-regarded for major pan-Asian financings for Chinese banks and leading global banks active in Greater China. Stephen Howard, who was recently promoted to partner, is recommended and Daniel Abercromby is a new addition to the team. Former head of team Eric Berg has retired and Andrew Bishop has joined Latham & Watkins LLP.
White & Case LLP regularly advises on some of the largest bank finance deals coming out of Asia, including significant regional cross-border deals that involve major international brands. In addition to the ‘efficient and commercial‘ practice’s widely respected lender-side work, it is also increasingly active in relation to private equity sponsor and borrower-side financings, and particularly stands out for asset, project and real estate finance work. Executive partner of the Beijing office, David Li focuses primarily on China inbound and outbound financing transactions, while Shanghai-based senior legal consultant Frank Shu has substantial experience in acquisition, structured and real estate finance. Eugene Man leads the Asia Pacific banking and restructuring practices from Hong Kong, where experienced Baldwin Cheng advises on major pan-Asian financings.
