Scott Peterman, a partner in Orrick’s Hong Kong office, is a member of the M&A and Private Equity Group.
Scott focuses on representing private fund sponsors and investors in the formation of alternative investment vehicles, including pan-Asian private equity funds, venture capital funds, infrastructure and real estate funds, private REITs, hedge funds, hybrid funds, emerging manager platform funds, Hong Kong authorized funds, and emerging market ETFs. In addition, he has advised on more than 150 account arrangements, representing sovereign wealth funds, universities, seeding and first-loss capital programs, family offices and individual investors.
Scott has extensive experience representing both Chinese state-owned enterprises and private companies in a broad range of M&A transactions, leveraged buyouts, venture capital financings, as well as relevant regulatory and compliance matters. He also counsels FinTech start-ups, develops compensation and profit-sharing schemes, and assists entrepreneurs in managing their wealth.
Scott offers clients a unique perspective with in-depth knowledge in the technology and telecommunications industries, having served for 13 years as a Silicon Valley senior executive prior to practicing law, including as Apple’s first country manager for China and Korea, director of Asia Pacific for Alcatel Data Networks and director of North American Corporate Development for Cable & Wireless.
Scott has been consistently recognized by various prestigious legal publications such as Chambers Asia, Asia-Pacific Legal 500, IFLR1000 and Who’s Who Legal. He gains high praise from clients for his “incredible base of knowledge”, “commercial acumen” and “awareness of what the client wants.” He is known as “a very experienced practitioner” with “unparalleled” expertise in “complex economic structures”. “Scott’s ability to understand what we wanted to accomplish and tailor-make our documents to our needs rather than giving us a ‘pre-hashed, cut-and-paste’ set of documents made him an unequivocal favourite,” a client noted.
Scott’s personal research reflects his continuing interest in early Chinese Zen Buddhism. He is the translator of the Tang Dynasty classic, “Treatise on the Essential Path for Entering the Way through Sudden Enlightenment” and the Song Dynasty “Record of Dazhu’s Responses to Questions of Disciples from All Over.”
Prior to joining Orrick, Scott worked at Jones Day and Sidley Austin in Hong Kong, and practiced in the United States, United Kingdom, and Japan for many years.
