On December 2, join Winston & Strawn Partner Simon Luk at the third annual Hong Kong M&A Forum, co-hosted by Mergermarket and AVCJ. The forum brings together leading corporate investors, senior advisors, regulators, and private equity professionals from across the region for a day of in-depth discussions and insights into the latest regulatory, risk, and technology trends impacting deal-making in the region. Winston & Strawn is a proud co-sponsor of the event. 

Simon will participate in the opening panel entitled "Market Spotlight: Regional M&A Outlook." As observed by the organizers, "Asian businesses overall have shown strong resilience in several sectors throughout the crisis and even prospered in some instances." The session will examine the trends and drivers for M&A activities in 2022 by analyzing the markets and sectors that provide the best deal-making opportunity, evaluating the impact of regulatory changes, and discussing the future of special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) in the region.

Simon chairs the firm's Asia Practice and advises Asian and international companies on a wide range of corporate finance, securities, and cross-border M&A transactions, with a strong focus on the structuring, listing, governance, and business combination of SPACs. He has assisted Asia-based sponsors in completing SPAC initial public offerings in the U.S., as well as in identifying potential business combination targets in various industries including fintech, crypto-currency, media & entertaining, healthcare, new energy, and waste management.
