The Haiwen team was led by partners Huo Chao, Xiao Yi, and Xu Qifei, with the Jia Yuan team being led by partners Yan Yu, Li Li, and Wang Jieting.

Partner Iris Leung, supported by partner Lipton Li, led the Linklaters team, while the Freshfields team was led by partners Teresa Ko, Richard Wang, and Calvin Lai.
