Global law firm Goodwin announced today that Bosco Yiu has joined the firm’s Hong Kong office as partner in the Private Equity practice. Yiu’s appointment deepens Goodwin’s comprehensive transactional capabilities for private equity firms and technology, media and life sciences companies.

He has particular expertise with Hong Kong takeovers, privatization, private and public mergers and acquisitions, reorganizations and equity capital markets transactions.

“Hong Kong remains a principal hub for private equity investments, transactions, and capital markets activity,” said Yash Rana, Chair of Goodwin’s Hong Kong office. “Bosco brings strong capital markets and transactional experience to further support Goodwin’s diverse client base in Hong Kong and the Asia region. We are delighted to welcome Bosco to the Goodwin partnership.”

Yiu received his LL.B from Osgoode Hall Law School of York University and a Postgraduate Certificate in Law from The University of Hong Kong. He is admitted to practice in Hong Kong, England, Wales and Ontario, Canada. He is fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin and English.
