Our Beijing office acts for a diverse client base across many industries. We represent clients who are already established in China and also those who are planning to enter the market. We also assist PRC businesses with their overseas investments, mergers and acquisitions and fund raising.

We continue to stay at the forefront of legal developments with a team that pioneered many transaction structures in China. For example, we acted on one of China’s first hotel joint ventures, the first joint venture-related arbitration and one of the first acquisitions governed by the PRC’s M&A regulations. Our close involvement with the evolution of PRC law and policy means that we are strongly positioned to help our clients effectively navigate the fast-changing legal landscape in China.

Within our broad service offering we have an impressive depth of knowledge in the areas of foreign direct investment, corporate finance, regulatory compliance, labour and employment and intellectual property with particular expertise in manufacturing, media and entertainment, energy and natural resources and life science industries. We also handle arbitration and other dispute resolution cases, working with trusted local counsel as appropriate.
