Weil Asia’s Managing Partners Tim Gardner and Charles Ching have been named among The Visionaries in The A-List 2023-2024 by China Business Law Journal, which honors the most highly recommended PRC and international lawyers in Greater China who “have earned the trust of clients through their proven legal expertise and visionary insights.”

Based in Hong Kong, Tim has been at the forefront of the private equity market in Asia more than 17 years, advising global and regional financial sponsors on complex cross-border transactions in the region. Consistently recognized as a leading lawyer in the industry, this honor reinforces his reputation as one of the very few “Band 1” lawyers in Greater China’s private equity market.

Charles, based in Shanghai, has a longstanding track record advising financial sponsors and corporate clients on some of the most complex and noteworthy public and private M&A and private equity investment transactions. This recognition is a testament to clients’ commendation of his “unmatched knowledge in both Chinese and international private equity and M&A markets.”

The A-List is based on extensive research conducted by China Business Law Journal, and reflects the nominations received from thousands of in-house counsel and legal practitioners in China and globally, combined with the editorial team's extensive, collective experience in analyzing China’s legal market.
