We have a leading Asia capital markets practice, advising on some of the most sophisticated and innovative transactions in Asia, from headline-making IPOs for dynamic young companies to complex high-yield offerings and liability management exercises.
Our capital markets practice is one of the most active of all international firms in Asia, and we have the deal flow to keep pace with market trends and developments. We regularly appear at the top of the capital markets league tables in Asia and all of its major markets: China, Japan, India and Southeast Asia. We also have deep experience in specific markets like Taiwan, Korea and Singapore.
In our ECM practice, our partners in Hong Kong, Beijing and Tokyo have the experience to lead issuer, underwriter and sponsor clients through the IPO and listing process, whether the listing venue is in the United States, Hong Kong or a local exchange. We advise listed companies on everything from corporate governance and listing rule compliance to follow-on offerings and rights issues.
In our DCM practice, we are widely known for our work in high-yield, particularly in crafting tailored covenant packages for debut issuers. We also frequently appear on benchmark deals for some of China’s largest bond issuers, whose size and sophistication call for particular skill in execution. Finally, we plan and execute complex liability management exercises, including tender and exchange offers, consent solicitations, concurrent new money offerings, and debt restructurings.
We have on-the-ground capability in New York, Hong Kong and English law, and native execution capability in Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese, Hindi, Tamil, Mongolian and Korean.
