As a leader in China's securities and capital markets, we provide cutting-edge legal advice
King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) was one of the first law firms approved to provide legal advice on securities transactions in China. We have a team of experienced lawyers who practise in frontier markets, providing clients with access to the source of “new world” capital through our global network. With unrivalled depth in Asia and as the only international law firm capable of practicing PRC law, we help our regional clients access global capital, and our global clients access Asian capital.
We are uniquely positioned with strength in China, the fastest-growing capital market in the world. We advise multinational companies, financial institutions and Chinese issuers on their A-share, H-share, red chip, ADR and GDR offerings. We also represent Chinese issuers and underwriters in their IPOs on the Shanghai, Shenzhen, Singapore, New York, NASDAQ, and Frankfurt stock exchanges. These projects span almost all sectors, including the largest and most complex transactions in each sector.
Over the last 20 years, we have advised issuers and underwriters on thousands of domestic and cross-border securities transactions, some of which have become benchmarks and milestones in the market. We also have an outstanding track record of advising on bond issuance, structured finance, and securitisation transactions on the debt side. We continue to be at the forefront of innovation in Chinese capital markets. Our ability to combine technical and commercial expertise with a depth of market connections reinforces our leading position and reputation.
