In 2021, the firm represented Nanjing Lishui Industrial Investment Holding Group in its issuance of Rmb500 million short-term financing bonds in 2021.

In 2020, the transactional team was busy with domestic M&A work. It advised on Chengdu Express’s acquisition of Chengdu Energy Development. This was an important landmark acquisition case for the diversified development of Chengdu's high-speed operations. The target company involved refuelling and refuelling station operations, with more points to adjust. The case has served as a reference for similar acquisition cases in Sichuan.
