Oliver Nip is a Hong Kong-based Private Equity Partner at Ropes & Gray, a global law firm. Oliver focuses his practice on representing various private equity firms sponsors such as Bain Capital, TPG Capital, and other investment managers in their cross-border buyouts, disposals and pre-IPO investments in Asian jurisdictions.
Ropes & Gray has a long-standing commitment to driving diversity and inclusion. Oliver supports the firm’s dedication to raising LGBT+ awareness by speaking at events in connection to LGBT+ issues. Many of the events focus on gender and sexual identity in Asia, where increasingly there is interest in discussing these topics. Ropes & Gray’s collaboration with Out Leadership began in 2014, when the firm signed on as a founding sponsor of Out in Law, the first LGBT+ senior leadership initiative for the legal profession. This partnership paved the way for a groundbreaking research project in 2019 about the implementation by global companies of LGBT+ self-identification programs.
