Cross border M&A and Private Equity

Eversheds offers full cross-border M&A services from its Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai offices to a diverse client base, which includes investment banks, PE funds, financial institutions and major corporate companies. We regularly advise multi-national and regional clients on their M&A and joint venture activities in Hong Kong and the PRC.

Our dedicated and experienced team of corporate lawyers has advised on transactions across many industry sectors including real estate, food & drink, energy & natural resources, technology, media & telecoms and financial services.

Our technical competence, as well as our commercial and practical approach are particularly important in China, where a complicated regulatory and cultural landscape often require innovative and practical commercial strategies and advice. Our lawyers have a proven track record in completing complex projects under immense time pressure.

Our recent experience includes:

  • advising Chow Tai Fook Enterprises on its acquisition of 70% of ownership control of Four Seasons Hotel in Shanghai and 90% of ownership control of two parcels of land in Shanghai from Hong Kong-listed company Shanghai Industrial Holdings Limited; and
  • advising Virbac on the strategic acquisition of all of the assets and technologies from a Taiwanese company to research, develop and manufacture animal vaccines and related biological products adapted to the Asian markets.

Our Greater China M&A team is also a part of Eversheds' 350-strong global M&A team located across 28 jurisdictions. Our strong global network offers our clients an integrated one-stop service with their cross border M&A projects.
