Corporate partner Chris Welty has been named to the 2021 IFLR Asia Future Leaders list. He is one of 13 lawyers based in Hong Kong to receive the recognition, and the only one to be recognized for his capabilities in both private equity and M&A.

The inaugural ranking survey puts in the spotlight “the next generation of influential lawyers working within corporate finance throughout the continent.” Not only did they have a large impact in their local markets in 2020 through influential, precedent-setting transactions, they had also received high praise from their peers and clients, indicating they are ready to step up to leadership positions within their markets.
