Conyers named Offshore Firm of the Year at IFLR Asia Awards 2014

March 2014

Conyers Dill & Pearman was named Offshore Firm of the Year at IFLR’s annual Asia Awards, which took place in Hong Kong last week. In addition to taking home one of the evening’s top honours, Conyers was also recognised for its involvement in the Focus Media take-private matter, which won Private Equity Deal of the Year.

The US$3.7 billion privatisation of Focus Media Holding Limited is, to date, the largest privatisation of a Cayman Islands company listed on the NASDAQ. The Conyers team, led by Hong Kong partner and Firm Co-Chair David Lamb and associate Angie Chu, acted as Cayman counsel to the buying consortium of FountainVest Partners (Asia) Limited, Carlyle Asian Investment Advisors Limited and CITIC Capital Partners Management Limited.

The IFLR Asia Awards are based solely on legal innovation, recognising the region’s most innovative deals and the firms that worked on them.

Recognised as one of the leading offshore law firms in the Asian market, Conyers was also recently named Offshore Law Firm of the Year at the China Business Law Awards. The IFLR’s legal directory, IFLR1000, recommended Conyers as a top-tier firm in its Hong Kong – Offshore Firms: Financial and Corporate category in 2014.



"They understood the urgency and demanding nature of the deals that we were working on - they were very responsive and commercial, and worked with us to make it happen."
