Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP


Founded in 1931, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP has been a preeminent provider of legal services for the past 90 years. With approximately 1,100 lawyers in offices on three continents, Weil has been a pioneer in establishing a geographic footprint that has allowed the Firm to partner with clients wherever they do business.

As one of the first-movers in the private equity space globally, we are consistently ranked as a market leader in this field. We understand the market, the players and the issues.  We support clients – in real time and in local languages – to execute their regional investment strategies. Our unparalleled experience in working with private equity funds, pension funds and large corporates makes us the destination practice for high-profile, cross-border transactions of all types, across all sectors and deal sizes. 

Weil's practice in the Asia-Pacific region focuses on complex, high stakes transactional matters for corporate and private equity clients since we set foot in the region 17 years ago. The Firm advises clients across the entire region – including China, India, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, South-East Asia and Australia/New Zealand – on both domestic and cross-border matters. Our lawyers are deeply experienced in mergers and acquisitions, takeovers, take-private transactions, minority investments (including PIPEs), joint ventures, strategic alliances, and other deals involving listed companies on the NYSE, NASDAQ, HKSE, PRC stock exchanges and other stock exchanges in Asia (including Tokyo, Singapore and Mumbai). With a team of more than 20 dedicated private equity and M&A specialists in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing, we work with our on-the-ground finance and restructuring teams to cover the full life cycle of investments – from acquisitions to exits, financing to management.
