Debevoise Advises on Award Winning Fund

9 November 2015

Debevoise & Plimpton has advised on a fundraising which has been named “Fundraising of the Year – Large Cap” at the 2015 AVCJ Private Equity and Venture Capital Awards at a ceremony held in Hong Kong.

Baring Asia Private Equity Fund VI, which was heavily oversubscribed, held its third and final close on February 24, 2015 with $3.98 billion in commitments. It is believed to be the largest private equity fund ever raised by an Asia-based manager, and will target companies in Asia, as well as those in Europe and North America with growth plans in Asia, in a broad range of sectors.

The awards were decided through a mixture of votes cast by Asia's PE and VC community, as well as contributions from a panel of industry judges and the AVCJ Editorial Board. They recognize the industry’s most market shaping activity in Asia over the previous year.

Debevoise & Plimpton has been advising Baring Private Equity Asia in its fundraising activities for over ten years, beginning with The Baring Asia Private Equity Fund III.

The Debevoise team which advised Baring Asia on the fund was led by Hong Kong based partner Andrew M. Ostrognai and international counsel Gavin Anderson. Other team members included New York based partner Adele Karig, Washington D.C. based partners Satish Kini and Kenneth Berman, associates Mai Shapiro, Gregory Larkin and Shawn Yang, and legal assistants Irene Ming and Brianne Leung.
