We are delighted to announce that China Business Law Journal (CBLJ) has named our Partner Hank Lo, who is Head of our firm’s Corporate Finance Department, and Partner Heidi Chui, Head of Banking and Finance and the Litigation and Dispute Resolution Departments, on their A-List China’s Elite 100 Lawyers (Foreign Lawyers) for their extensive experience and exceptional recognition by clients.

The A-List is based on extensive research conducted by CBLJ by consulting thousands of in-house counsels, clients, and partners at PRC and international law firms. The final list of 200 elite lawyers (100 lawyers from PRC firms and 100 lawyers from international firms committed to China-related business) is selected from over 2,000 nominations and feedback from business professionals and clients, combined with CBLJ’s years of experience and insights into China’s legal market.

I am honoured to be recognised by CBLJ for 3 consecutive years. The market has been under the impact of a pandemic, so I am very grateful for the trust and recognition from our clients, as well as the support and hard work of our team. We will continue to work closely with our association firm, AllBright Law Offices, to expand and enhance our services in China’s legal market.

Mr. Lo, the head of Corporate Finance, specializes in capital markets, corporate finance, and mergers and acquisitions matters. He has significant experience in advising issuers, sponsors and underwriters on initial public offerings on both the main and GEM boards of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited; advising publicly listed companies on a broad range of corporate finance transactions; advising private equity funds, venture capital funds and Hong Kong-listed companies on their investments in and exits from companies with an emphasis on China. He also advises companies in Mainland China on matters including property transactions, foreign investment and initial public offerings in other overseas stock markets.

Mr. Lo has been recognised by multiple international industry-leading legal directories. In addition to being named as “The A-List China’s Elite 100 Lawyers” by CBLJ for 3 consecutive years, Mr. Lo was also named one of the “Dealmakers of Asia 2021” by Asian Legal Business (ALB), and “Highly Regarded Leading Lawyer in Capital Markets: Equity 2021-22” by IFLR1000.

It is an honour for me to be recognised by CBLJ’s “A-List China’s Elite 100 Lawyers” alongside other exceptional lawyers. Thank you CBLJ for the recognition and our team members for their dedication, especially the long-term trust and support of our clients. I look forward to having closer collaborations with our clients in China’s legal market, in particular, in the Greater Bay Area, to provide innovative and pragmatic solutions.
