Global law firm White & Case LLP has continued to build its corporate/M&A and capital markets practices in Asia with the addition of Catherine Tsang as a new partner in Hong Kong.
"We continue to establish White & Case in Hong Kong as a leading international law firm with a significant local law practice," said White & Case partner Eric Berg, Head of Asia. "Catherine's arrival, which follows the recent additions in Asia of private equity and corporate partners Peggy Wang and KS Kim, reflects our ongoing ambition to expand our M&A and capital markets capabilities across the region."
The addition of Catherine, who joins the Firm's Global Mergers & Acquisitions Practice, supports the Firm's strategic focus on profitable growth in M&A. She concentrates her practice on corporate transactions and capital markets, advising clients on equity capital markets deals including Hong Kong Main Board and other capital markets fund raising transactions, as well as mergers and acquisitions. Catherine, who is fluent in English, Cantonese and Mandarin, also represents corporations on a variety of general corporate and commercial matters. She joins White & Case from Paul Hastings, where she was a partner, and brings more than 15 years of experience.
"Catherine is a technically astute lawyer with experience in Hong Kong public M&A and equity capital markets including Listing Rules, Takeovers Code and securities regulation," said White & Case partner Barrye Wall, Regional Section Head, Asia. "Her broad experience and language skills will be particularly valuable assets as we continue building our China corporate practice and grow our role supporting Chinese clients on their international growth ambitions."
With more than 30 years of experience in Greater China and offices in Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai, White & Case helps clients navigate the legal challenges of doing business in the region as well as providing practical knowledge and advice. The Firm's multidisciplinary and multicultural legal teams include lawyers qualified to practice in English, US and Hong Kong law, as well as those trained in PRC law, to ensure clients are successful in their most complex transactions.
