JunHe was recently recognized by the International Financial Law Review (IFLR) with the Private Equity Deal of the Year award at its Asia-Pacific Awards 2024. This accolade was bestowed in recognition of JunHe’s role in the financing of the take-private of Chindata Group Holdings Limited (Chindata Group).
