Herbert Smith has advised JPMorgan Securities and China International Capital Corporation (CICC) on the $1.16bn (£0.56bn) global offering of shares in Chinese truck manufacturers Sinotruk.
JPMorgan and CICC were the joint global coordinators and book runners on the transaction and turned to Herbert Smith following its work on past transactions in the sector.
