China Business Law Journal celebrates the most significant transactions of 2010 and reveals the domestic and international law firms that guided them to fruition. By George W Russell and Raymond Yang
With global lending in retreat and governments in Europe and North America hamstrung by debt, China has emerged as a bright light in the world economy. Its deposit-rich financial institutions, strong domestic demand and major outbound investments helped make China itself a Deal of the Year.
Following a lengthy period of research and consultation, China Business Law Journal has compiled a collection of landmark deals concluded between December 2009 and December 2010 that showcase legal talent at its best. The winning deals and cases, which are divided into several categories, have been chosen subjectively based on transactional data, submissions received from PRC and international law firms, and interviews conducted with China-focused legal and corporate professionals.
In China Business Law Journal this month we cover outstanding deals and cases in the fields of banking & finance, offshore IPOs, outbound M&A, infrastructure & project finance, intellectual property, and restructuring & insolvency. In next month’s issue we will cover domestic IPOs, domestic and inbound M&A, dispute resolution, private equity & venture capital, foreign direct investment and environment & natural resources.
