Banking & Finance

Our position as a leading firm in the banking and finance industry comes from our strong experience and in-depth knowledge across all areas relevant to this sector. We take on not only large complex financings but also the smallest of loans and we are well prepared to handle the ever-changing market conditions as well as the overnight changes of deal structures.

We act for several of the leading investment and commercial banks in the world and our engagements in this area ranges from day-to-day operational guidance to comprehensive and sophisticated advisory services. The firm has been involved in many of Macau’s ground breaking deals, including the biggest bank mergers and acquisitions (handling all regulatory and other requirements, due diligence and transaction documentation) as well as large financial restructurings and bankruptcies.

We apply practical and business orientated approaches for commercial banks, foreign banks, bank holding companies, investment advisors, corporate borrowers and lenders, hedge and equity funds, venture capitalists and other financial institutions.

This enables us to offer advice not only in connection with financing and lending but also with respect to securities reporting requirements, executive compensation and employee benefits, corporate governance regulation, litigation and bankruptcy.
