Weil Recognized in 2017 FT Asia Pacific Innovative Lawyers Report

Weil had a strong showing in the FT Asia-Pacific Innovative Lawyers Report for 2017.

The Firm earned a place on the FT 25 International, a ranking of the most innovative international firms in the Asia-Pacific region.

In the Legal Expertise category, Weil was “highly commended” for its role representing HNA Group in its acquisition of an approximate 25 percent equity interest in Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. from affiliates of Blackstone. The acquisition is one of the largest Chinese investments into the United States, and Weil was recognized for overcoming many regulatory and timing hurdles and negotiating new governance rights for HNA to close the deal.

The FT Innovative Lawyers Report, in partnership with RSG Consulting, ranks law firms that have brought original thinking and practices to business issues. Innovations are scored on originality, rationale and impact.
