Fenwick & West’s hiring of partner Karen Yan, counsel Alexandra Yin and special associate Liz Qin in the firm’s growing Shanghai office was featured in both The American Lawyer and Law360.
Yan joins the firm from Latham & Watkins and will focus her practice on mergers and acquisitions, as well as capital markets. She represents international companies in corporate financings, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, initial public offerings, private equity transactions and U.S. securities law compliance.
Counsel Alexandra Yin, who focuses on capital markets, and special associate Liz Qin joins the firm’s corporate practice as well.
“We have been very fortunate in the warm reception and significant business opportunities we’ve experienced since opening our Shanghai office less than two years ago,” said Gordon Davidson, China practice lead, in Fenwick’s announcement of the newest additions to the team. “Our China practice has included many venture capital financing transactions and strategic investments, three going-private deals valued at over $5.5 billion in total, two U.S. IPOs, multiple transborder acquisitions and extensive intellectual property counseling projects."
