  • A group of PRC clients in identifying and acquiring a marble mine in China, overseeing the successful listing of the mining concessions on the main board of the Stock Exchange in Hong Kong when the company was still in its exploration stage with no profit and revenue and subsequently advising on the disposal of controlling stake of the listed company together with the mining concession, all completed within three years of assets acquisition;
