We help identify and limit project risks, and we pro-actively help identify potential issues, solutions and options that work in the China market.

PRC Local Network and Relationships.

We maintain good relationships with PRC governmental authorities at the central, provincial and local levels. We cooperate with a national network of talented and internationally-capable local PRC counsel with whom we have worked for many years on commercial, enforcement and litigation matters. This network has been developed over the last two decades and enables us to provide our clients with international work products with "home turf advantage". Because of our extensive network in China, we have the unique capability to help our clients source and evaluate opportunities and transactions.
