White & Case LLP adds partners in Beijing
Law firm appoints Grace Fan-Delatour as Beijing partner, along with local partner Shaohui Jiang, who will advise clients on cross-border mergers and acquisitions
Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its global mergers & acquisitions practice with the addition of Grace Fan-Delatour as a partner in Beijing, along with local partner Shaohui Jiang.
“Growing our M&A capability in Greater China has been a priority for the firm as we look to respond to client demand in the extremely active market there,” says White & Case partner John Reiss, head of the firm’s global mergers & acquisitions practice. "The addition of Grace and Shaohui swiftly follows the arrival of four private equity partners in Hong Kong in February and demonstrates the breadth and strength of our corporate capabilities in Asia-Pacific.”
Fan-Delatour advises clients in the oil and gas and mining and metals sectors on cross-border mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, project development and financing and private equity investments. She regularly advises on transactions spanning the Asia-Pacific region, as well as outbound investment into North America, Central and Southeast Asia, South America and Russia. Fan-Delatour joins White & Case from K&L Gates, where she was a partner.
Jiang advises clients on mergers and acquisitions, project development and finance, leveraged finance and private equity investments. He has particular experience advising on cross-border transactions involving the United States, China and Africa. Jiang joins White & Case from K&L Gates, where he was counsel.
“Grace is a talented lawyer who, along with Shaohui, will play an important role expanding our corporate capabilities in Asia-Pacific and working closely with the lawyers in our infrastructure, mining and metals and oil and gas groups,” said White & Case partner Baldwin Cheng, regional section head, Asia-Pacific corporate, finance & restructuring. “In particular, Grace’s work in the extractive sectors coupled with her track record make her ideally placed to advise clients investing in the Belt and Road Initiative.”
