Please note that Chinese Business Lawyers Association is having a seminar on public to private deals on Novmeber 29 at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Hong Kong. As we mentioned in a recent Asia Chronicles post, there is a big pipeline of these type of deals currently at some US firms in HK / China and thus we are seeing a significant increase in the need by our US firm clients in HK / China for lateral hires with such deal experience. Private Equity practices, in particular, are having a lot of this type of of deal flow.

Kinney Recruiting and the Asia Chronicles have always been a big supporter of the Chinese Business Lawyers Association. We are institutional members of the CBLA and over the years have advised, represented and placed in Asia a large number of attorney members of the organization, including former board members. We support the CBLA because it is a great source of information on the Asia biglaw markets for US associates based in the US who are considering or seeking a lateral move or transfer to Asia. The CBLA also has a presence in Hong Kong and conducts informative seminars and other events there for its members, many of whom are former NYC based associates who joined CBLA while in NYC.

Going Private and Going Dark: Considerations for U.S. Publicly Traded Chinese Companies

Dorsey & Whitney LLP and the Chinese Business Lawyers Association cordially invite you to a seminar on key issues that face U.S. publicly traded Chinese companies that are considering going private or going dark. In light of the challenges many U.S. publicly traded Chinese companies face under the current regulatory and market conditions, an increasing number of Chinese companies are considering leaving the U.S. reporting system by going private or going dark. Going private and going dark are complex processes that involve many business, legal and accounting issues. Restructuring those companies after the completion of a going private transaction also involves tax and corporate issues that require careful planning. An expert panel consisting of senior investment bankers, lawyers and accountants with real case experience will discuss the topic with the audience. Please see the details below and register by November 26, 2012 if you would like to attend.
