Clifford Chance advises Partners Group on multijurisdictional merger filings for its over US$250 million acquisition of equity stake in Ecom Express

Leading international law firm Clifford Chance has advised Partners Group on multijurisdictional merger filings for its over US$250 million acquisition of equity stake in Ecom Express, an Indian e-commerce logistics company.

Partner Yong Bai led the international team and was supported by senior associate Zibo Liu and associate Nan Lan in Beijing, partner Richard Blewett and associate Ana Hergouth in Brussels, partner Jenine Hulsmann and senior associate Annagiulia Zanazzo in London, and by partner Itir Ciftci and associate Asli Kural from our associate firm Ciftci Attorney Partnership in Istanbul. 

Yong Bai said, "Our Beijing team was delighted to coordinate global merger filings for Partners Group on this strategic transaction in the e-commerce, technology and logistics sectors. Our Antitrust group has once again demonstrated that we are extremely well positioned to advise PE clients through the multijurisdictional regulatory filing process in relation to their complex cross-border transactions."

Ecom Express is one of the largest providers of technology-enabled end-to-end logistics solutions to the Indian e-commerce industry.

Clifford Chance's Greater China antitrust team led by Yong Bai, has advised on a number of recent high profile transactions including China Baowu Steel on its 51% stake in Taiyuan Iron & Steel and China State Shipbuilding Corporation on its merger with China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation.
