Since Paul, Weiss established a Hong Kong office in 1983, we have demonstrated a strong commitment to Hong Kong, its role as a regional financial center and its ongoing importance to business transactions in mainland China. In addition to our U.S. law capabilities, Paul, Weiss is a registered Hong Kong firm qualified to advise on Hong Kong legal issues.
While the firm is equipped to handle a variety of corporate legal matters throughout Asia, our Hong Kong office places special emphasis in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital, foreign direct investment and the establishment of joint ventures, infrastructure development, project finance, acquisition finance, capital markets, corporate governance and internal investigations, and reorganizations and restructurings. We advise clients across a wide variety of industries, including significant representations involving broadcasting, communications, media and technology, entertainment, financial services (banking, insurance and asset management), theme parks and gaming facilities.
Lawyers in the office are involved in cross-border transactions involving jurisdictions throughout the Asia-Pacific region, including in mainland China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand. The office works closely with the firm’s Beijing office and is supported by our other offices globally.
