Loeb Smith Partner Peter Vas recognised in ALB Offshore Client Choice List 2022


Press Release

Loeb Smith is pleased to announce that Peter Vas has once again been recognised as a leading offshore lawyer in Asian Legal Business’ Offshore Client Choice List.

 

The list comprises Asia’s standout lawyers from offshore law firms who have exceeded client expectations and is the culmination of extensive research conducted by ALB which involves collating feedback from in-house counsel, onshore lawyers and other corporate services professionals. Among other things, Peter is described by clients as “consistently excellent”, “practical, responsive and a pleasure to work with”, and “very knowledgeable”. This builds upon Peter’s recognition earlier this year in Asia Business Law Journal’s A-List of Offshore Lawyers in which clients have explained that he delivers “outstanding service and quality” and “goes above and beyond in his work”. Peter is also described as “very responsive” in the Legal 500 Asia-Pacific.

 

Peter is a Partner in, and leads/coordinates, 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 once again be recognised as a leading offshore lawyer in Asia. As a firm, we strive to deliver an outstanding level of service and are pleased that our clients have recognised this.”
