We have worked in Asia and with Asian businesses for many years and have had a presence in the region since the 1990s. Our clients, ranging from early-stage businesses to the world’s foremost brands, demand intelligent and innovative legal and business solutions from a team attuned to the nuances of working in such a diverse and dynamic region.
Our long-established offices in Shanghai and Beijing have excellent local, regional and national connections and a history of helping foreign businesses establish operations in China. Through our association with HM Chan & Co we also have a thriving office in Hong Kong serving international and local clients doing business in Hong Kong, Greater China, and the ASEAN region, or using Hong Kong as a platform for their international investments. Our association with leading South Korean firm, DR&AJU, adds an important dimension to both our inbound and outbound Asia capability. We also have a network of contacts in South-east Asia that can help clients looking to work in those countries.
Our local lawyers work alongside our teams in Europe, many of whom have extensive experience of working with Asian companies. This combined team supports Asian clients looking for help in many areas as they expand internationally, including M&A, commercial contracts, intellectual property, real estate, employment and immigration, and tax. We advise a number of Asian companies that have quickly become global brands, helping them with their landmark international investments.
While we can cover many different sectors our group is particularly recognised for its work in the technology, life sciences and real estate sectors. We also have a growing reputation for helping Asian high-net worth individuals with their commercial and private investments, as well as providing a full portfolio of private client services.
