Loeb Smith Partner Peter Vas recognised in A-List of Offshore Lawyers by the ABLJ

Loeb Smith Attorneys is pleased to announce that Peter Vas has been recognised as a leading offshore lawyer by the Asia Business Law Journal in its A-List of Offshore Lawyers.

The A-List comprises Asia’s standout lawyers from offshore law firms who have exceeded client expectations and is the culmination of extensive research conducted by the ABLJ which involves collating feedback from in-house counsel, onshore lawyers and other legal professionals. Among other things, Peter is described by clients as “incredibly responsive and detailed” and as being able to bring “his incredibly extensive experience to every conversation”. This builds upon Peter’s previous recognition in the ALB Offshore Client Choice List and the Legal 500 Asia-Pacific, in which he has been described as “very knowledgeable of offshore legal matters”, “being able to provide succinct, commercial advice in a timely manner” and “very responsive”.

Peter is a Partner in the firm’s Banking & Finance and Corporate Groups in Hong Kong. He provides British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands law advice to banks, other financial institutions, sponsors, insurance companies, other corporate entities and private clients and has acted on some of the largest and most complex banking & finance and corporate transactions in the Asian market. For example, he provided BVI and Cayman Islands law advice in connection with China Vanke's participation in a consortium to take Global Logistic Properties Ltd private which was valued at approximately US$11.6bn, Singapore's largest M&A deal on record and Asia's largest private equity buyout at the time of the transaction. He also advised the steering committee of bondholders of certain notes issued by Kaisa Group in connection with its restructuring of nearly 17 billion yuan in offshore debt involving around 70 offshore vehicles.

Peter commented on his recognition and said: ”I am delighted to be recognised as a leading offshore lawyer in Asia by the ABLJ. This demonstrates the highly personalised and responsive level of service that we seek to provide to all of our clients and I am grateful that our clients recognise this.”
