Butwin, Chair of O’Melveny. “Tony’s significant experience in US merger and acquisition transactions, as well as his cultural background and Mandarin-language skills, are invaluable assets to US companies traversing the complex China legal and regulatory landscape.”
Known as a leading corporate practitioner in China, Wang is ranked by Chambers Asia as a “Leading Lawyer” in “Corporate M&A High-end Capability: China-based (International Firms)” (Band 2 in 2015) and “Private Equity: Buyouts & Venture Capital Investment (International Firms)” (Band 3 in 2015).
