Sullivan & Cromwell’s Hong Kong office has added Jacqueline Tang as a new restructuring partner.
Previously, as one of the leading partners at Kirkland & Ellis on Evergrande Group’s USD19.15 billion offshore restructuring proposals, Tang acted as legal counsel to the ad hoc group of bondholders.
Tang is well-versed in advising Asian corporates, credit funds, private equity and financial institutions on financing and restructuring, including cross-border debt restructuring and liability management.
She is qualified to practice in Hong Kong and New York, and speaks fluent English, Mandarin and Shanghainese.
Kay Ian Ng, the Hong Kong-based managing partner at Sullivan & Cromwell, said Tang would strengthen the firm’s cross-border finance and restructuring capabilities in the Asia-Pacific region, working alongside Chris Beatty, a partner focusing on Australian private credit business, and Michael DeSombre, a partner specialising in M&A across Korea and Southeast Asia.
