WASHINGTON, DC, April 2, 2018: Morgan Lewis today welcomes corporate partner Tony Chan, who advises clients on a wide range of complex transactions across industries, including technology, life sciences, and financial services. Mr. Chan will be resident in Morgan Lewis’s Washington, DC, office.

Mr. Chan, who helped establish the corporate group in Washington of the global firm from which he arrives, works with strategic buyers and sellers as well as private equity and other financial sponsors across a variety of corporate transactions, often involving international and cross-border components. Mr. Chan focuses his practice on the technology, life sciences, and digital health industries, in which he has assisted in numerous transactions ranging from hundreds of millions to more than $1 billion in value. He also frequently assists clients in the financial services sector—including investment advisors, mutual funds, hedge funds, private equity funds, fintech companies, and broker-dealers—in mergers and acquisitions and similar transactions.

“Tony has represented both established and emerging companies in a broad variety of strategic transactions and collaborations,” said Firm Chair Jami McKeon. “Our clients in the technology, financial services, and life sciences industries in particular will benefit from his versatility and wide-ranging experience.”

Mr. Chan, who is also an adjunct professor at Georgetown University Law Center, advises clients on mergers and acquisitions, including private equity and growth equity transactions, as well as corporate finance, emerging company formation and financing, public company governance, and general corporate matters. At Morgan Lewis, he joins a firm that has been consistently ranked as a global leader for mergers and acquisitions by independent publications such as Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, and Mergermarket.

“Tony has handled a tremendous number of transactions and knows how to maximize value for the companies he represents,” said Steve Browne, who heads the Morgan Lewis corporate and business transactions practice. “He will work closely with other elements of our global firm, including our investment management practice, in providing fully comprehensive client service. Tony also further strengthens our thriving Washington corporate and finance presence.”
