Asia Group Head and Hong Kong Partner Judy Lee oversees the Capital Markets team alongside Partners Chris Cheng and Paul Cheuk. They are supported by Counsel Vincent Chan, Senior Associate Robert Sit, Associates Quinton Tse and Huiyan Liew, and Legal Executive Connie Wu.
Speaking on another successful year at Appleby, Judy commented “In 2019, we saw a significant increase in our share of the global offering transactions on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. This increased from a role advising on 11% of all transactions in 2018 to a market share of 46% in 2019 and a record high for Appleby in terms of total deal value. This alongside the increase in instructions from the PRC is an endorsement of the expertise of our tri-lingual team, who consistently deliver great results for our clients. “
