Shyu’s practice focuses on advising mid-sized and large-scale public companies on equity capital markets and corporate M&A transactions, particularly in the energy and natural resources sector.

Shyu will work closely with colleagues in Akin Gump’s Hong Kong office and across the firm’s top-tier global corporate and capital markets practices.

“Allen’s arrival significantly boosts our capital markets, corporate and energy offerings in mainland China,” said Akin Gump chairperson Kim Koopersmith. “Clients in Beijing, Hong Kong and across the region will benefit significantly from his experience.”
