DFDL announced it recently signed a co-operation agreement with Yingke Law Firm, a full-service international law firm based in China, to enhance collaboration between the firms by acting as a non-exclusive partner of Yingke in Southeast Asia and Bangladesh.
Yingke has partners in 100 cities spanning 51 countries, and DFDL said in a statement it was delighted to be collaborating with Yingke “at a time when Chinese businesses are looking further afield as their ambitions lie behind the One Belt One Road policy and the 21st century Maritime Silk Route Economic Belt”.
Yingke aims to be at the forefront of these Chinese incentives and as partners, DFDL will be in a strategic position to assist Yingke with its aspirations for the region. The firm is looking towards China as part of its strategic direction to further diversify services.
The firm said Chinese businesses have been rapidly expanding their footprint in Southeast Asia and DFDL has addressed this by introducing its China desk to cope with the rising demand of Chinese businesses seeking services across the firm’s regional markets.
