The Ulaanbaatar firm, which has two partners, will become a DLA Piper focus firm, concentrating on mining, capital markets, banking, project finance, hospitality and leisure and infrastructure work.
DLA Piper’s Beijing corporate head Steven Liu, banking partner Paul Lee and solicitor Martin Navias will manage the relationship with C&G.
“The relationship with C&G Partners will enable the firm to have a presence in an emerging economy where our clients are doing increasing volumes of business,” said Alastair Da Costa, DLA Piper’s Asia Pacific managing director. “Mongolia’s attracting considerable investment from neighbouring G20 economies, Russia, China, Korea, Japan and Australia and as such it’s an important market for us to engage with.
“As a DLA Piper focus firm, C&G is our law firm of choice in Mongolia. Together, we’ll continue to support our existing clients as well as attract and develop opportunities for new work, delivering integrated, quality legal services to the market. As a focus firm, C&G will gain access to some aspects of DLA Piper’s know-how and resources.”
