Private Equity International has selected Hong Kong corporate partner Amy Beckingham for its 2017 “Thirty Under 40" lawyers' list. The honorees were chosen from an international group of “high-achieving lawyers under the age of 40” based on “their career progress, their client base, notable work to date and their X Factor.”

Beckingham advises private equity and other financial investor clients in public and private M&A transactions, private equity exits as well as joint ventures. The magazine noted that she has earned recognition for “her commercial acumen, technical skills and entrepreneurial drive,” describing her as a “hands-on” contributor to the growth of Latham & Watkins’ private equity practice in Asia. Her recent deal work includes Warburg Pincus and KKR’s Series D investment in GO-JEK, marking the largest single-round fundraising for a Southeast Asian technology company. Private Equity International also noted that Beckingham “supports the firm’s diversity initiatives and is the Asia representative on the global steering committee for Women Enriching Business, a firm committee designed to address the business challenges and opportunities unique to women.”
