Firm Overview: We are one of the leading fullservice Chinese law firms in the People’s Republic of China (PRC). As a national law firm headquartered in Shanghai, we provide a comprehensive range of high-quality legal services to both domestic and international clients from our 19 offices, respectively in Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Fuzhou, Hangzhou, Hefei, Jinan, Nanchang, Nanjing, Qingdao, Shenzhen, Suzhou, Tianjin, Taiyuan, Xi’an, Xiamen, Zhengzhou and Hong Kong.

While size is only one of many indicators of the success and resourcefulness of a law firm, being the largest law firm based in Shanghai (and in the entire Eastern China region), we certainly lead in this respect among our peers.

We have more than 1,800 registered lawyers,including more than 540 partners and senior consultants.

Aside from our regular working language of Chinese (Mandarin and major dialects), many of our lawyers are fluent in English, Japanese, French, German, Korean and other major languages, and many are also admitted in overseas jurisdictions. Our partners and senior consultants came to the firm with diverse professional and personal backgrounds. Many transactional lawyers have practised for years in top international law firms and/or in leading multinational companies. A number of our litigators were judges and prosecutors, and many are active arbitrators. We also have access to a strong network of former government officials and legislators. Supported by a large team of translators and legal assistants, our professionals have undertaken many complex and high-profile transactions, and have won many landmark cases.

Our lawyers have played critical roles in advising the government on, and actually drafting, many of the core Chinese laws and regulations involved in our daily practices today, and have been involved in drafting several international treaties concerning international investment, trade and other forms of economic co-operation.

Our practitioners possess a wealth of first-hand experience and legal expertise in providing effective solutions to the most complex of legal issues regarding the application of laws and regulations, governmental approvals and legal procedures.

Key Practice Areas: Corporate and commercial securities; Capital markets; Banking and financing; Real estate and construction; Dispute resolution; Intellectual property; International trade specialist areas.
