Allen & Overy will be expanding its Asia-Pacific Corporate practice with the appointment of partners Gilbert Li and Iris Yeung, who will join from Linklaters. They bring a strong track record and deep experience advising clients on major corporate transactions, including public and private M&A, as well as a whole array of equity capital markets (ECM) transactions. Li has advised on some of the most high-profile and complex public M&A transactions in Asia-Pacific, and has an established track record leading on private M&A and ECM transactions. With his strong energy, infrastructure, financial services and fintech experience and transaction history, Li will divide his time between the firm’s Hong Kong and Sydney offices. On the other hand, Yeung is also a highly regarded corporate lawyer, who advises investment banks and corporations on public M&A and equity fund-raising exercises. She has advised on a number of market-leading deals, and will work closely with the firm’s Greater China practice, as well as with the firm’s joint operation firm, ‘Shanghai Lang Yue Law Firm’, to provide Mainland China companies with a Hong Kong SAR nexus support on their public and private fundraising and other corporate transactions.
