Mergers & Acquisitions in Asia

An Asia-Based Team Continuing the Firm’s Strong Tradition in M&A Excellence


Debevoise’s Asia team, based in Hong Kong and Shanghai, is made up of experienced international corporate lawyers who are committed to, and understand the needs of, the firm’s Asian and global clients, and are fully versed in UK and U.S. M&A practice.

As an integral part of Debevoise’s leading global practice, the firm’s Asia M&A lawyers have extensive experience with domestic and international acquisitions, dispositions, joint ventures and strategic investments.

The Asia M&A practice regularly leads transactions for a variety of corporate clients, financial services institutions and private equity firms. Areas of particular strength include complex leveraged acquisitions, cross-border transactions and asset management deals.

Debevoise’s M&A Group has a high level of partner involvement in live matters, and the Asia team is no different. Clients receive the hands-on, personal attention of sophisticated M&A partners and ready access to the lawyers required to deliver legal services efficiently.

These elements – intense partner attention, a blend of practice breadth and focus, teamwork and a dedication to quality – define the way Debevoise practices law in its M&A Group. It is an approach that sees the team continue to win plaudits in the major legal directories. Chambers Asia Pacific ranks the practice among the leading international firms for corporate/M&A in India and China. It says of the team that they are “leading advisers to major private equity and insurance sector clients. Experienced in handling high-value sales and acquisitions of business units across the region.”
