Conyers Dill & Pearman wins Offshore Firm of the Year accolade at IFLR Asia Awards 2014

Conyers Dill & Pearman has been named Offshore Firm of the Year at IFLR’s annual Asia Awards, which took place in Hong Kong.

Conyers was also recognised for its involvement in the Focus Media take-private matter, which won Private Equity Deal of the Year.

The $3.7bn (£2.2bn) privatisation of Focus Media Holding is, to date, the largest privatisation of a Cayman Islands company listed on NASDAQ.

The Conyers team, led by Hong Kong partner and firm co-chair David Lamb and associate Angie Chu, acted as Cayman counsel to the buying consortium of FountainVest Partners (Asia), Carlyle Asian Investment Advisors and CITIC Capital Partners Management.
