Carey Olsen Asia pair named as leading lawyers in the Chinese market

China Business Law Journal has named Singapore partner Anthony McKenzie and Hong Kong SAR partner Michael Padarin on its 2021 A-List – recognition that puts them among the leading private practice lawyers in the Chinese market.

In order to identify the elite lawyers for China-related business, China Business Law Journal conducts extensive research throughout the year, and invites thousands of in-house counsel, business leaders and lawyers to nominate those they consider to be excelling in the industry and providing the highest quality service. The list features 100 lawyers working in PRC firms and 100 lawyers in foreign firms.

Anthony is the managing partner of the firm's Singapore office. He has a broad range of experience in corporate and commercial and finance transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, secured and unsecured financing arrangements, preference share issues, IPOs and capital markets transactions.

Michael is the managing partner of Carey Olsen's Hong Kong office, and his practice primarily concentrates on the formation, operation and restructuring of private investment funds, predominately private equity and venture capital funds, and their related fund sponsor vehicles.

Both advise on Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands and Bermuda law.

Commenting on their recognition in the A List, Anthony and Michael said: "It is an honour to have been recognised for the second year running in the prestigious China Business Law Journal A-List.

"Carey Olsen's Asia practice is going from strength to strength and this accolade reflects the quality of service the firm is offering in Singapore and Hong Kong, as well as the high regard industry professionals hold our lawyers in. While we are obviously delighted to have been individually recognised on this occasion, our inclusion is testament to the overall standard of Carey Olsen's Asia corporate offering."
