Shanghai Pacific Legal has once again achieved strong results in IFLR1000 2023 rankings. This is the third successive year that the banking and finance team was recognised for their practice in China as a notable law firm. In addition to the team’s success, Joy Gao, who leads the team, was also ranked as a highly regarded lawyer for the first time in the annual guide. 

The recent recognitions by highly reputable legal publications (such as Legal 500 and Asialaw Profiles) is a reflection of the banking and finance team’s strength and experience as one of the core practice area in the firm. The team is committed to continue supporting our clients with PRC legal advice in respect of China-related financing transactions, debt restructurings, and financial services regulation.
