The Legal 500 has recently launched its 2023 attorney rankings. Han Yi Partners Richard Xu and Anna Yu have both been recognized by The Legal 500 as “Leading Individuals” in China among a dozen of top-performing PRC lawyers in the PE practice area.
As a leading Chinese boutique firm focusing on PE/VC and cross-border M&A transactions, Han Yi strives to provide clients with business-driven yet practical legal solutions to their business mandates. With a team of excellent professionals, we are proud to have maintained a leading position in our core practice areas and received numerous top professional rankings for years from such influential firms as Chambers & Partners, The Legal 500, IFLR1000, Asian Legal Business, China Business Law Journal and Legal Media 360.
As the founding partner of Han Yi, Richard Xu has been recognized by Chambers & Partners and other reputable professional ranking institutions as a top tier lawyer in the PE/VC practice area for well over a decade. In recent years, our midlevel partners have also gained widespread recognitions from clients, peers and professional ranking institutions for their consistent high-quality professional services. Based on the remarkable performance in structuring and executing innovative and complex cross-border investment transactions and clients’ high recognition, our partner Linda He has been recommended by Chambers & Partners in the PE practice area for six consecutive years with the steadily improving rankings. Partner Lynn Zhang has won respect from clients and the market for her solid professional strength and meticulous working style mainly in the VC investment and the financing practice areas, and has been ranked one of the top 100 PRC lawyers under China Business Law Journal’s A-List for 2021. Partner Anna Yu, before recently voted a “Leading Individual” by The Legal 500, has been recognized by IFLR1000 as a “Rising Star Partner” for several years based on her extensive experience in large scale cross-border transactions and her business-driven quality services provided to multinational institutional clients.
All the above rankings have been conducted independently by the relevant professional service agencies based on industry feedbacks, peer reviews as well as their own market research and analysis results, and to some extent serve as a meaningful indicator of our midlevel partners’ strength and standing in the competitive PE practice area. Han Yi lawyers cherish their market reputation and will continue to provide their clients with consistently high quality, innovative and practical legal services, always on a cost-efficient basis.
