Davis Polk was named “International Firm of the Year: Capital Markets” and “International Firm of the Year: Technology, Media and Telecom” at the 2020 China Law & Practice Awards. Also hosted by The Asian Lawyer, The American Lawyer and Legal Week, the awards honor the leading firms and lawyers on China-related matters.
In the capital markets category, Davis Polk was selected based on the firm’s strength in both equity and debt. The firm’s work over the last 12 months on at least 15 U.S. and Hong Kong IPOs, and since 2019 on more than 100 debt deals totaling over $40 billion in proceeds in Greater China was highlighted.
With respect to TMT, Davis Polk worked on two “massive” initial public offerings in this space, as well as a “major acquisition by a Chinese conglomerate with a high dollar figure and complicated transaction structure, demonstrating strong commercial knowhow.”
The awards were announced virtually on October 15, 2020.
