Asian Legal Business (ALB) recently released their annual rankings of the top law firms for mergers and acquisitions, and once again, DaHui is near the top of the top. This is the 10th consecutive year of our firm’s inclusion in ALB’s highly regarded Asia M&A Rankings list.
Despite a drop in the value of M&A deals across Asia Pacific in the first half of this year, DaHui Lawyers worked on a wide range of deals, typically serving as lead counsel not only for local but also international parties. For example, we represented logistics company J&T Express on its RMB 1.183 billion (approx. USD 170 million) acquisition of Shenzhen Fengwang Information Technology Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of China’s largest logistics services company, S.F. Holding Co., Ltd. Our deftness at navigating every facet of complex, cross-border transactions is a decisive factor in our clients’ choosing to engage us and in the decision of publications like ALB to rank us among the best of the best.
While DaHui advises on numerous domestic mergers and acquisitions, it focuses on and excels in cross-border deals, particularly involving multinational and other large international companies entering, expanding in, or exiting the China market. Our firm brings top expertise and experience not only in straightforward M&A law and practice, but also in foreign-investment and forex restrictions, anti-trust, corporate governance, capital market requirements and planning, intellectual property, cybersecurity, other regulatory compliance, and tax, among other areas.
ALB offers unbiased and authoritative insights on developments in the legal services industry throughout the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East. Its rankings are premised upon metrics including deal volume, size, and complexity as well as each firm’s new and existing clients, key hires and growth, marketplace visibility, and domestic and international presence. ALB identified and ranked the top PRC law firms for mergers and acquisitions based on both M&A data from Thomson Reuters and input from market players, law firms, and ALB’s editors.
In addition to ALB, top legal platforms such as Chambers and Partners, The Legal 500, and others continue to include DaHui in their annual lists of major M&A players. We sincerely thank ALB and all these publications for their continued recognition, and our clients for their continued trust and support.
