July 30, 2021 – Hughes Hubbard ranked among the top five law firms for M&A deal value in the Asia-Pacific region, according to Mergermarket's league tables.

HHR ranked fourth with three deals worth a combined $40.2 billion in Mergermarket's July survey, which covered transactions during the first six months of 2021 and excluded Japan from its analysis. 

“Though the firm has one Asian office in Tokyo," reported Law.com International in its coverage of the rankings, “Hughes Hubbard has been a regular advisor to Southeast Asian ride-hailing giant Grab, including on its acquisition of Uber Technologies' business in Southeast Asia and more recently on its $856 million funding from Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc. and Tokyo-based network provider TIS Inc."

HHR's Mergermarket ranking was also covered by The Global Legal Post. Ken Lefkowitz led or co-led the HHR teams on these deals.
