Tanner De Witt – One of the best law firms in Hong Kong according to IFLR 2015


We are delighted to be featured as a top Hong Kong law firm in the 2015 IFLR guide, published earlier this week. Our Restructuring and Insolvency practice ranked in Tier 1 again this year, naming co-heads of the department Ian De Witt and Robin Darton as “Leading Lawyers”, along with senior consultant Anthony Hill.

The 2015 IFLR guide for the best law firms in Hong Kong also recognised our Corporate and Commercial practice, highlighting our involvement in significant M & A mandates as well as our diverse client base, ranging from high net worth individuals to multi-national corporations.

Here’s what IFLR 2015 said about Tanner De Witt:

Tanner De Witt is a solid independent Hong Kong firm with a small team that guarantees partner focus.

The firm acts on behalf of Hong Kong and overseas clients in transactions relating to M&A, joint ventures, business sales and purchases, corporate reorganisations, investment and shareholders agreements, private placements, due diligence, private equity transactions and banking and finance.

The firm has been involved in a number of confidential notable M&A mandates involving a wealth management company, real estate, fashion, financial services, interior design and life sciences.

The firm really comes to the fore in restructuring and insolvency, and while the insolvency market in Hong Kong has been relatively quiet in the past year, Tanner De Witt’s team continued to be a strong choice for the available work. 

It has worked on a number of confidential mandates involving a PRC insolvency, bankruptcy, securities brokerage, education, real estate and aviation.
