May 8, 2019

The Financial Times named Ropes & Gray a top firm for innovation in its “Asia-Pacific Innovative Law Firms 2019.”

Ropes & Gray received praise in the “Enabling Business Growth and Transformation” category for the firm’s work on two noteworthy transactions:

  • Ropes & Gray designed the governance structure for a joint venture between Alibaba Group and Switzerland-based luxury goods company Richemont. Accounting for cross-platform data and privacy protection for Alibaba's customers while navigating the legal structure of mainland China, Ropes & Gray negotiated deal terms that enable each party to bring the retail offerings of Richemont to Chinese consumers.
  • Ropes & Gray advised Bain Capital on its simultaneous acquisition of U.S.-based packaging company World Wide Packaging and a leading Chinese cosmetics packaging manufacturer. The two transactions were the first step in Bain Capital's plan to merge the two companies. The new entity is expected to provide packaging solutions to beauty brands around the globe.
