Chambers Asia Pacific 2013 comments that "Weil has proved particularly successful in forming highly productive relationships with key funds clients across the region. It has been able to utilise its global reach and deep bench of funds specialists to serve major names in the Asian funds market. The practice hub is located in Hong Kong and the team is adept at co-ordinating on a cross-border basis with offices in London, New York, Boston, Washington, DC and Shanghai to provide integrated advice on complex, multi-jurisdictional matters. Boyu Capital, Legend Capital and Thomas H. Lee Partners have all recently called on the team in the formation of high-value private equity funds. The firm has also been making excellent strides on the real estate side, most notably forming a pan-Asia real estate fund for ARA (an affiliate of the Cheung Kong Group)." Sources state that Weil is "excellent as to both depth and breadth. A standard bearer in the Asian market."
