Boosting our Greater China Corporate M&A Offering

 

18 January 2018

Allen & Overy announces today that it has appointed Jack Wang as a partner for its Shanghai office as part of the firm’s continuing expansion of its China focused corporate M&A practice.

Joining from Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Jack has more than 20 years of experience in cross-border M&A, private equity and general corporate transactions and has an enviable track record advising international and Chinese investors across a range of sectors including automotive, consumer and healthcare.

Jack’s appointment continues the ongoing investment in Allen & Overy’s client offering to meet the needs of both Chinese and multinational clients looking at making strategic acquisitions. This follows the appointment of Corporate M&A partners Wayne Lee, Lina Lee and Jonathan Hsui as well as the relocation of Michael Jacobs across the firm’s Greater China offices since 2016. 

Richard Browne, global co-head of Corporate comments: “Supporting our clients in their strategic China related corporate matters is one of our key global priorities. Jack’s deep understanding of and familiarity with both Chinese and international clients, along with his Chinese language skills, will make him a valuable addition to our growing team in China.”

Victor Ho, China managing partner, said: “Cross-border M&A into and out of China remains active despite recent policy developments driven by the Chinese Government. We are very excited to have a corporate practitioner of Jack’s calibre join our team and his arrival will further strengthen our M&A and private equity capabilities, servicing both our international and Chinese clients”.

Recognised in Chambers & Partners Asia Pacific directory, Jack is US qualified and speaks fluent English and Mandarin Chinese.
