Appleby is the only offshore firm to feature two Hong Kong based lawyers in the list.

Appleby’s Hong Kong corporate restructuring practice predominantly practices Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands and Bermuda law and covers the entire Asia Pacific region.

The team advises on liability management and holistic restructuring solutions for debtors, usually involving cross-jurisdictional restructuring solutions with main proceedings in the offshore jurisdiction or recognition proceedings for onshore proceedings.  They also advise creditors and ad hoc groups on the options available to maximise their recovery either through acceleration of debt and enforcement of security or participating in the restructuring solution.

Recent transactions our Hong Kong team have been involved in include CHC Group’s USD500m recapitalisation plan, which closed in August 2022, as well as providing continuing advice to six Hong Kong listed China real estate development companies in respect of their ongoing liability management and restructuring options.

The IFLR1000 has been producing legal market intelligence since 1990 and remains the only international legal directory dedicated to ranking law firms and lawyers on the basis of financial and corporate transactional work.
