Legal services

Not only do the Laws and regulations in China change every week but they can also be interpreted in a thousand ways. But even in such a jungle, our legal, taxation, and employment experts will be able to bring you meaningful responses, with no limits, and within a set budget.

A complex legal environment
WBecause of its history, China still does not have the benefit of a stable and clearly defined legal environment since it is an old country going back more than 2,700 years, which has been continually ravaged by innumerable wars and foreign invasions without ever having been able to benefit from a homogeneous political system.

But it is a young country too, since it has only been pacified and unified thanks to a central power for a few decades. And in addition, it has only recently opened its doors to the West. In such a context, one must admit that the Laws and regulations are in full development. One frequently notes the contradictions between the different regulations issued by the different authorities : Central government, regions, provinces, cities, districts, etc.

And we must not forget that in China everything is based on personal relationships, the “Guanxi”. Hence, the Laws and other regulations will be interpreted in as many ways as there are readers. Which is why it is important that you are accompanied at every step by the best specialists there are, those who have a “relationship” with the authorities, which is essential if your business is to succeed in China.

A personalised and unlimited legal service
We can appreciate that it is difficult for you to determine in advance which legal services and advice you may require. Nevertheless, you want to control your costs and certainly do not wish to commit to unknown budgets. This is the reason why we are offering you, for an agreed fixed annual amount, a personalised and complete legal service which comprises :
• Advice and answers to all your questions on employment law, business law, intellectual property, taxation, etc.
• The drafting of your contracts and any other legal documents that you may require,
• Written responses to any problems that may occur,
• The assistance of a business lawyer twice a year during the negotiations with your partners,
