China's ambitious and increasingly outward looking, technology driven economy is an important market for our international clients. Having recognized the business potential at an early stage, we have one of the strongest track records in successfully advising on Sino-foreign transactions and investments for more than three decades.
In a pioneering move, we set up our first office in Shanghai in 1996. As the Chinese economy has evolved, our practice has gone from strength to strength. We opened a second office in Beijing in 2008 and our Hong Kong office in 2016.
With our longstanding Sino-foreign experienced lawyers based in our local China offices in Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong as well as in our European offices, the Taylor Wessing China Group consists of more than 50 professionals proficient to handle the most complex multi-jurisdictional transactions and investment projects.
Advising on the full range of legal matters, we are best-known for our corporate/M&A, intellectual property, commercial, employment and real estate work. Our clients are from a variety of industries and include multi-national corporations and medium-sized companies as well as Chinese state-owned enterprises and investment banks and firms. With our sector-specific expertise and approach we are in the position to embrace all legal and strategic aspects of our clients’ business ventures in the most dynamic industries, including the Technology, Life Sciences & Healthcare, Automotive & Mobility and Cleantech sectors.
Over the decades, we have developed strong and highly co-operative relationships with Chinese government organisations and administrative entities on a central, provincial and local level. We also have strong links to several Chinese law firms and other professional services firms operating in the region, to help you navigate the complexities of local regulatory and cultural requirements.
With our offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong SAR, we are present in the major economic centres in China.
