Public and private companies
Our global corporate team combines several complementary areas of high-level experience, having represented hundreds of private companies and over 100 public companies.

In Asia, partner Anthony Indaimo brings years of experience as a trusted advisor to luxury brand owners and world-class athletes, and was named among the best corporate lawyers in the Spear’s 500 guide. Mabel Lui, based in our Hong Kong office, is one of most respected corporate lawyers in the region, having advised the foreign investor in the first Sino-foreign joint venture in China in 1979, as well as advised one of the first H share issues by a Chinese corporation with dual listing on the Hong Kong and New York Stock Exchanges in 1993. These lawyers and many more pool their experience to find the best solution for each and every client.

Advising successful people around the world means we understand the unique legal issues surrounding private capital. This can range from investment, structuring and control of cross-border investments to the corporate and personal tax issues created.
