“The Proskauer team serving on our deals was technically strong, very commercial and reliable. The team was led by Ying, a go-to lawyer for cross-border M&A and financing deals in the real estate sector. Ying is a native Chinese with dozens of years of experience advising clients on various cross-border transactions. He really focused on the client's needs and had a great understanding of our business and culture. Ying was very commercial and had a very good insight into the market. He was known for his sharp style at the negotiation table. When negotiating deals for clients, Ying always knew how to maximise the clients' negotiation leverage. Ying was also practical and efficient, and was quick in coming up with solutions that were both commercially and legally sound. We really benefited from his representation.”
