Foreign direct investment
Through our Guangzhou and Shanghai offices and our relationships throughout the People's Republic of China (PRC), we help Hong Kong and international clients to do business in the PRC, and PRC clients who operate in Hong Kong and international territories.
We offer a wide range of legal services to assist our clients with every stage of their investments, acquisitions, joint ventures, operations, financing, restructuring (equity and debt) and divestments in China. Our team provides practical legal advice on all aspects of employment, foreign exchange, taxation, banking and finance, intellectual property and international trade.
Working closely with our clients, we proactively design commercial structures that suit their long-term needs – be they representative offices, joint ventures, wholly foreign owned enterprises, holding companies or foreign invested joint stock companies.
