Weil’s Hong Kong Managing Partner Tim Gardner and partner Henry Ong have been recognized in The Legal 500’s M&A Powerlist: Asia Pacific 2024, which “reflects those practitioners that are deemed the gold standard.”
Based in Hong Kong, Tim has been at the forefront of the M&A and private equity market in Asia for over 18 years, advising global and regional strategic corporate and 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 the region and as “counsel of choice” for high-profile M&A transactions.
Henry, also based in Hong Kong, has a longstanding track record advising corporate clients, strategic investors and boards of Hong Kong-listed companies on a wide range of cross-border M&A transactions, including public and private M&A, strategic alliances and joint ventures as well as corporate governance matters. This recognition is a testament to clients’ commendation that he “stands out for his strategic thinking combined with sound legal analysis.”
The inaugural Asia Pacific M&A Powerlist is based on extensive research conducted by The Legal 500’s research team, who also approached leading M&A practitioners and general counsel active in the market to identify leading M&A counsel across the region. The list showcases the leading practitioners working in Australia, Bangladesh, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.
