September 2013

Conyers Dill & Pearman took home two honours at the recent Macallan ALB Hong Kong Law Awards for its work on the Yahoo! Inc./Alibaba buyback, one of the most well-publicised deals of the year.

Conyers acted as Yahoo!’s Cayman Islands counsel on the privatisation of Alibaba.com and Alibaba’s buyback arrangement with Yahoo! Inc., which won in both the Equity Market Deal of the Year and M&A Deal of the Year categories.

The Yahoo!/Alibaba buyback has been noted for its innovation and complexity, also taking home Private Equity Deal of the Year at the ANCJ China Awards and TMT Deal of the Year at the ALB China Awards. It was also named Best China Deal by Finance Asia and Country Deal of the Year by Asia Money.

David Lamb, a partner in Conyers’ Hong Kong office and Co-Chairman of the Firm, led a team providing Cayman law advice to Yahoo!, working alongside US counsel Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom.

The Macallan ALB Hong Kong Awards, held on the 6 September at the Conrad in Hong Kong, recognise the excellence and outstanding achievements of Hong Kong’s leading law firms and in-house legal teams as well as the year’s top dealmakers.
