On March 20, 2017, Asian Legal Business(ALB) published the 2017 list of “China Top 10 M&A Lawyers,” selecting Jincheng Tongda & Neal (JT&N) Senior Partner, Guohua (Annie) Wu, as a recipient of this elite recognition.
Since joining JT&N, Ms. Wu, serving as lead counsel, has led her team to act for multinational corporations, Chinese state-owned and private-owned companies, and investment institutions in high-profile M&A transactions. Ms.Wu and her team adhere to a “STAR” philosophy, where “S” represents“Solutions,” “T” represents “Teamwork,” “A” represents “Adding value,” and “R”represents “Responsiveness,” with “Solutions” being the most important among the four values. In Ms. Wu’s experience,during the course of a transaction a few seemingly unsolvable “dead ends” will typically arise. “What makes a lawyer outstanding or merely good is that an outstanding lawyer is able to find, with keen insight and judgment, a delicate balance between legal compliance and business solutions in the shortest possible time during rapidly changing negotiations to facilitate the successful conclusion of the transaction.”
According to ALB, top M&A lawyers need to have not only a solid foundation of knowledge and rich practical experience, but also clear ideas and creative solutions. ALB’s “China Top 10 M&A Lawyers” survey sought to identify such talented individuals through law firm recommendations, lawyer achievements and other factors. Of the many nominations collected, ALB selected winners based on such important criteria as representative career deals, major transactions within the past 12 months key clients, awards and accolades, and client recommendations, ultimately delivering a listing of some of the most impressive M&A practitioners in China today.
ALB, owned by Thomson Reuters, is a leading legal industry publication which focuses on developments in the Asia-Pacific and Mideast regions. The list of the China Top 10 M&A Lawyers is published in ALB China’s March issue.
