Preparing for China

We provide our clients “home turf advantage" in Greater China, supported by:

  • A history of successful transactions in a broad range of industries in many coastal and interior regions of China.
  • Experienced native, overseas Chinese and Western professionals who know and "live" China.
  • An intimate familiarity with existing and pending legal and business trends.
  • An integrated business and legal approach which provides practical solutions
  • A practical business approach to legal advisory work that provides clients with accurate risk assessment and viable options.
  • A proven network of local counsel, feasibility experts and government relations that can be critical to the success or failure of a client's project or entire strategy in China.
  • Ability to select, build and cooperate with a team of professionals specifically tailored for a client's particular needs, as they may change from time to time.
  • An intimate knowledge of the decision-making, approval and implementation process in China and the ability to coordinate multiple bureaucracies. Long-term perspective on China's main trends which is not captive to short-term stop-go-stop policy reversals.

  • Undertake special enforcement activities including PRC litigation (with our local counsel network) and international arbitration matters to ensure the enforcement of the bargain as well as administrative remedies against bureaucrats that cause damage to the interests of private parties allowable under the laws of China.
  • Assist investors and foreign invested enterprises (both foreign and local clients) with their strategic restructuring (entry, expansion and re-organization) activities to buy out minority or partner shareholdings through conventional as well as creative structures and arrangements.
  • Plan and execute infrastructure projects including power stations, telecommunication, toll road, water resource, waste management and renewable resource projects.

Market Knowledge

We provide decision-makers with an additional reservoir of "in country experience and elements" to support their China team and senior management, and to define and achieve their market entry, expansion and turn-around strategies and tactics. We help identify and limit project risks, and we pro-actively help identify potential issues, solutions and options that work in the China market.

PRC Local Network and Relationships.

We maintain good relationships with PRC governmental authorities at the central, provincial and local levels. We cooperate with a national network of talented and internationally-capable local PRC counsel with whom we have worked for many years on commercial, enforcement and litigation matters. This network has been developed over the last two decades and enables us to provide our clients with international work products with "home turf advantage". Because of our extensive network in China, we have the unique capability to help our clients source and evaluate opportunities and transactions.

Client Testimonial

One of the best China lawyers based in Shenzhen! I appreciated this Shenzhen lawyer's service because they helped me achieved my goals, though it was a tough mission. They are English speaking lawyers, so there are absolutely no communication barrier you likely encounter elsewhere. What impressed me is these Shenzhen lawyer's quick response and professional service, two characteristics which I treasure most. Although the Shenzhen lawyers are based in south China, they represent clients across the country, so you can also call them China lawyer! - Johnson
