BEIJING, CHINA ─ OCTOBER 25, 2010O’Melveny & Myers LLP partners Howard Chao and Larry Sussman will be featured speakers at the 9th Annual China Financial Markets Conference, being presented by the Wall Street Journal  and co-sponsored by O'Melveny, on November 16, 2010, at the Sofitel Wanda Hotel in Beijing, China.


Chao, Chair of O’Melveny’s Asia Practice, will lead a discussion of future trends in Chinese offshore merger and acquisition deals, including which areas of the world and which sectors of business Chinese companies will target for deals, how China can streamline the process of offshore transactions, and who stands to make money on the financing of these deals.


Sussman, managing partner of O'Melveny's Beijing office, will address some of the most talked about topics in Asia right now, including how RMB funds stack up against offshore funds, how funds backed by Chinese LPs have changed industry dynamics, and how the latest draft of new National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) rules stands to affect the private equity industry.


O’Melveny, which has five offices in Asia and is a leading international law firm in the region, is the founding sponsor of the event. This year's theme is "China and the Changing World Financial Order." The conference, which each year attracts the heads of influential financial institutions, investment funds, consulting firms, and financial exchanges, along with leading academics, will focus on how China wields its new-found clout in the world of mergers and acquisitions, in currency and stock markets, and in the debate over reforming global financial regulation. Speakers will discuss how Chinese financial institutions are reforming, expanding, and partnering with foreign players in new ways, as well as the impact for investors and others involved in the financial markets of China’s efforts to build a consumer-oriented economy, encourage green technology, and nurture a domestic private equity industry.


Please contact Sonja Steptoe or Julie Fei in the US, Rico Ngai in Hong Kong, and Lena Li in Beijing, at the numbers listed above to arrange interviews with Sussman or Chao on any of these topics.
