Beijing Tian Yuan Law firm has hired three senior capital markets lawyers in Hong Kong - Jean Yu from Clifford Chance, Lindsay Gao from Sidley Austin and Charles Wang from Herbert Smith Freehills. 

The three lawyers join as partners of Tian Yuan’s associated firm in Hong Kong. While Yu is a former partner of Clifford Chance, Gao and Wang left their previous firms as senior associate and counsel, respectively.

Key IPOs that Yu has acted on include BAIC Motor's $1.42 billion listing, China CNR Corp's $1.2 billion IPO and Yitai Coal’s $902 million listing. 

Their appointments come some months after Tian Yuan Law Firm hired capital markets expert Nan Li as a partner in Hong Kong from Paul Hastings, where he was chief representative of the Beijing office.

“The new appointments show Tian Yuan's determination to further enhance its HK capital market's business," said Tian Yuan in a press release.
