Litigation

The short answer is that Chinese courts are not particularly biased towards foreign parties, and yes, it is worth going to court against a Chinese party if one feels that one has a case. Generally speaking, Chinese laws provide equal protection to both domestic parties and foreign parties. That being said, it is true that local protection (favoritism of local parties by the authorities) has not entirely been eradicated. The level of local protectionism often depends on where the suit is brought. The judges in most of the large Eastern cities, such as Beijing and Shanghai, are extremely well educated, informed, and fair.

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
