The globalization of business has taken Shearman & Sterling to new markets throughout the world. The move into Asia came early for us—our first office in the region was in Hong Kong in 1978. That "toe in the water" exposure was a catalyst for substantial growth of the firm's Asian practice, which now includes five offices.
Our lawyers in Hong Kong have extensive experience in advising international clients from Greater China, North Asia, including Korea, and the rest of the Asian region, together with India, the Philippines, and Thailand. The Hong Kong office also works closely with lawyers in the firm's other offices in Asia, the Americas, and Europe, connecting clients across the world with markets in both the East and West.
Generally recognized as the "go-to" US firm for capital markets work, our Hong Kong office has advised on the region's largest IPOs, innovative debt offerings and privatizations, and our Hong Kong law capability means we are able to offer 'one-stop' legal services to clients looking to conduct business in Hong Kong or list on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. An historic M&A powerhouse in the region, we have been recognized for our involvement in the most sophisticated and complex M&A transactions in Asia. Fielding one of Asia's strongest project teams, we have worked on some of the region's most significant project development and financing deals, covering a wide range of industries.
Our market-leading reputation is evidenced by our consistently high rankings in the Asian capital markets, mergers and acquisitions and project finance league tables.
