Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, Han Kun Law Offices, and Commerce & Finance Law Offices served as legal advisors to the joint sponsors, while Latham & Watkins and Dahui Lawyers provided legal services to the issuer.

The Dahui team was led by partners Chris Chen, Julia Dai, Greg Guo, and Gong Jiawen in the corporate and capital markets department.
