The Leading Funds Practice in Asia
Debevoise was one of the first firms to advise private equity funds on their activities in Asia, and has remained at the forefront of the sector ever since. Over the years, it has been consistently ranked at the top of all the relevant league tables. It has advised the most prominent and innovative funds in Asia, constantly leveraging its superior understanding of the Asia market to deliver successful solutions to clients.
The team works across the full spectrum of market participants, from large pan-Asian buyout funds to smaller sector or country-specific funds, as well as foreign-sponsored, RMB-denominated private equity funds and secondaries funds. This wide-ranging experience sees the team remain at the cutting edge of the industry, whether that be in terms of structuring or regulatory advice or specialist investment strategies.
The award-winning team is led by Gavin Anderson, described by clients in Chambers & Partners as “very quick, very smart and gives very high-quality advice.”
The team also benefits from Debevoise’s global investment management and private equity strengths. The firm has exceptional capability in these areas in Europe and the U.S., as well as market-leading M&A, acquisition finance and capital markets teams. In working alongside these teams, the Asia Funds practice provides a powerful offering for clients. Chambers Asia-Pacific has described the Asia Funds practice as “the gold standard regarding fund formation.”
