Vinson & Elkins has represented clients in Asia for more than 30 years. Our three Asia offices— located in Beijing, Hong Kong and Tokyo — service their respective local commercial hubs, as well as the broader Asia Pacific region. Our practice also has a significant presence beyond our office locations, with lawyers frequently advising on matters in Australia, India, Korea, and Southeast Asia.
We offer a range of international
legal advice, and have extensive on-the-ground experience working with local
counsel throughout the region. Our lawyers are well equipped to handle the full
scope of transactional and contentious matters, both for Asian clients investing
abroad and international companies conducting business in Asia.
With a team of U.S., English,
Hong Kong, and Australian qualified lawyers, we have an
enviable track record of representing top-tier global energy clients across the
region. Our lawyers are attuned to the challenges and opportunities of overseas
investments, and have advised on groundbreaking M&A transactions for our
clients. Our China practice has historically represented prominent Chinese state-owned
enterprises on some of China’s largest outbound investments in the natural
resources and energy sectors, as well as international consortiums on
large-scale energy projects across Asia.
