Yeung joined Clifford Chance from Shearman & Sterling, where he advised on debt and equity offerings of securities into the US, high yield and investment grade debt offerings, Rule 144A/Regulation S placements, and liability management transactions. He received his JD from the University of British Columbia, has a BA in Economics, Asian Studies and International relations from Cornell University, and is fluent in English, Mandarin and Cantonese.

"We are delighted to welcome Alan,” said Anthony Wang, co-head of global financial markets practice in Asia Pacific at Clifford Chance. “This hire further strengthens our US offering in the region and globally and ensures we are best placed to meet all the anticipated financing needs of our clients."

"As a leading US practitioner in the debt space, Alan will deepen our significant US securities capability in Asia Pacific and enable us to continue to provide the most experienced advisors for our clients,” said Leng-Fong Lai, head of capital markets in Asia Pacific at Clifford Chance.
