What We Do

Charltons was established as a boutique corporate finance law firm in 1998. The firm has played a key role in the development of China's emerging corporate finance sector through its successful corporate finance, M&A, corporate restructuring, and commercial law activities. It has offices in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, and a newly opened office in Yangon and employs over 45 people. Charltons continues its tradition of landmark and innovative legal work.

As a boutique corporate finance firm, with a significant focus on the natural resources sector, Charltons continues to build on its extensive experience of advising Hong Kong, PRC and overseas businesses and financial institutions on their capital raising and M&A, investment and business activities in Hong Kong, China and internationally. Charltons' extensive experience working on Greater China corporate finance enables it to remain at the forefront of transaction structuring.

Charltons provides a highly professional and personalised service. We offer clients access to experienced lawyers with the objective of providing practical, creative and commercial solutions that match their business objectives and priorities. We are totally committed to building strong and collaborative working partnerships and relationships where we share knowledge and exchange information, where we are accessible, helpful and approachable. We ensure that we meet deadlines and provide a service that we hope exceeds clients' expectations.

The Charltons team includes professionals from diverse cultural and academic backgrounds, with many lawyers dual qualified in Hong Kong and in various other major jurisdictions.

Charltons' mission is to become the Hong Kong law firm of choice to natural resource companies, their professional advisers and other industry participants through the provision of informed, practical legal advice from exploration to production and beyond.
