HFW has continued to expand its fast-growing transactional offering in Greater China with the hire of a nine-lawyer corporate finance team, including partner Matthew Wong. The team specialises in capital markets, including IPOs, as well as M&A, private equity and other transactional work. They join the firm’s Hong Kong office from US law firm Locke Lord. The move reunites the team with senior corporate finance partner Wing Cheung, who joined from Locke Lord earlier this month. Wong specialises in corporate finance and capital markets, including IPOs and secondaries, M&A and joint ventures, foreign direct investment, corporate restructurings, private equity, venture capital and funds work. He also acts on Hong Kong company law and securities regulatory compliance issues.
