Our Firm

We are one of the first truly private partnership Chinese law firms. In response to the economic growth in China and the increasingly extensive and diverse requirements from a growing number of international investors, our mission is to provide the highest professional service to our clients.

As a recognised leading PRC law firm, we serve both Chinese and international companies in across a range of industries and advise on, and create innovative legal structures for transactions in a whole spectrum of commercial areas such as capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, private equity, banking, structured finance, project finance, general corporate, inward investment, commercial property, tax, intellectual property, insolvency, telecommunications, media and Internet.

Our firm is dedicated to meeting the specific needs of each client. We place great emphasis on excellence of services, a commercial approach, efficiency of costs and, of course, speed of response.

We have over 200 lawyers placed in our four offices nationwide. All our lawyers are selected according to the strictest standards. Quality of professional service is of paramount importance, though versatility is also highly encouraged. A clear understanding of commercial realities by our lawyers is emphasised to ensure that we are able to identify the most appropriate approach for our clients.

We are able to assist cross-border transactions. Most of our lawyers have bilingual capabilities and many have been educated or trained in common law jurisdictions. The firm has experience of co-operation with leading international firms in New York, London and Hong Kong, and is consistently recognised as one of the most able legal advisors on PRC laws in various cross-jurisdiction deals.
