Experienced corporate lawyer Geoffrey Tang has joined Ogier's Hong Kong corporate team.

Geoffrey, who joins Ogier after 12 years with a leading international firm in Hong Kong, advises on all elements within the corporate legal space including equity capital markets, group restructurings and general corporate advisory work and has a particular focus on private and public M&A transactions.

Geoffrey has worked on many of the biggest transactions in Hong Kong and Asia in the last decade.

Partner Nathan Powell, who leads Ogier's corporate law team, said that Geoffrey was a very welcome addition to the team. 

He said: "Our Hong Kong team continues to grow in response to client demand – the use of BVI and Cayman vehicles in particular remains strong in the region.

"Geoffrey's experience in big ticket corporate work and particularly within M&A, acting for both targets, bidders and financial advisers will be an asset, as we have been seeing a steady increase in these areas for some time."

In addition, Geoffrey has completed secondments to two major international investment banks.

Ogier's Hong Kong team was described as "responsive, commercial and helpful" by the latest Legal 500 directory, and the most recent Chambers and Partners Asia-Pacific directory cited client quotes highlighting the team's "extremely high technical proficiency", its "really friendly, almost familial atmosphere within the offices" and ability to "provide quality work in an efficient fashion".
