Independent intelligence on this law firm
The following information is sourced directly from China Business Law Journal and/or Law.asia and is not part of the directory listing provided by the law firm.
A client from a well-known art gallery found the firm to be professional and exploratory in “exploring the integration of art collection and family financial management”. The client recommended partner Yun Dahui, who “has a wide range of influence in the industry” and “is very socially responsible and has both professionalism and management skills”.
Zhu Xiaowei, the client of Tahone Capital (subsidiary company to Taihehui) particularly recommended partner Xu Yu: “Our company recognises the professional ability of Xu Yu and his team in this case to solve the needs of customers. [He has] a professional theoretical level and innovative spirit to maintain the legitimate rights and interests of our company to the maximum extent.” The team communicated with the bankruptcy administrator and requested recognition of the creditor status of each bondholder and give them voting rights. The case involved more than 2,000 natural persons as creditors and attracted great attention in the local area. The case is ongoing.
“In a lawsuit filed by our company to the Shanghai Financial Court, the team of Hylands assisted us to complete the preparation of materials, file an appeal, and the court accepted the case within a week, which saved us a lot of time,” says Zhu Xiaowei, the chief investment officer of Tahone Capital. Zhu recommends Xu Yu of Hylands.
