China Law & Practice has honored Latham & Watkins’ Greater China Practice for advising on a range of litigation and finance matters at the 2017 China Law & Practice Awards. Latham earned recognition as the “Dispute Resolution International Firm of the Year” for helping clients resolve high-stakes arbitration proceedings, enforcement actions, and shareholders’ disputes. China Law & Practice also cited Latham’s role in advising the underwriting banks in the financing of Tencent Holdings’ acquisition of Supercell Oy — a complex, cross-border matter that received the “Finance Deal of the Year” award.
For more than a decade, China Law & Practice’s annual awards have focused on innovation and excellence. According to the publication, these two factors “have become even more important this year as clients seek new ways of raising money, making investments and capitalizing on rare and strategic opportunities, amid a geopolitical and economic outlook that appears more uncertain than ever.”
