Sidley has been shortlisted for the “China (International Firms) Corporate & Finance Law Firm of the Year” award at the Chambers Asia-Pacific & Greater China Region Awards 2022. The annual awards – which this year will take place virtually on April 7 – honor the work of national and international law firms across the region, “including outstanding work, impressive strategic growth, and excellence in client service.”
Sidley has been ranked by Chambers Asia-Pacific and Chambers Greater China Region in a number of corporate, finance, and key sector categories, some of which have retained Band 1 rankings for over a decade. These ranking categories include Corporate/M&A, Capital Markets, Private Equity and Venture Capital, Life Sciences, and Corporate Investigations.
One quoted client commented that Sidley is “among the best that we have dealt with in recent years and in my 30 years of work experience in corporate finance areas.”
“They understand very well the historical evolution of various critical regulatory topics and their complex context, which means their legal advice goes beyond the interpretation of laws and is rather a comprehensive guidance to our business.”
“The firm has very solid experience in Hong Kong IPOs. They know how to handle those difficult questions and have good relationships with regulators.”
“Sidley Austin always provides professional and high-quality legal services, keeps clients’ commercial needs in mind, and has added much value to our business.”
A multidisciplinary practice, Sidley’s China Corporate and Finance group is a vital part of the firm’s leading global Capital Markets group, representing clients in structuring and executing securities transactions and disclosure matters across several sectors, including fintech, telecommunications, media and technology, and life sciences. From formation, fund raisings, PE/VC financings, IPOs, and debt/bond issuance, to acquisitions/dispositions, strategic alliance, privatizations, and regulatory and compliance, the group provides truly comprehensive support.
