Bridging the cultural, legal and communicative differences with experience
Our China practice group provides Chinese business the unique advantage of a comprehensive, multidisciplinary practice that incorporates knowledge of the Dutch and the Chinese laws and regulations, culture, language and business traditions. Our services include legal, tax and compliance issues and boardroom assistance. Our practice group consists of 15 lawyers, plus Dutch support and paralegals in China, and two fully certified Chinese law lawyers in the Netherlands.
Qualified on both sides
We are the first Dutch law firm that opened an office in China with the approval of the Chinese Ministry of Justice. Our offices in Shanghai and Beijing have a great advantage - our lawyers are fluent in Chinese, Dutch and English and can bridge the gap between the two cultures and legal systems. Our clients are Chinese companies who are finding their way into the free market economy and they can communicate directly with our Sino-Dutch lawyer teams in China to discuss China outbound legal strategies.
We have been active in China since 1995 and know how to avoid and conquer obstacles of legal and cultural nature. We advise Chinese companies who invest in the Netherlands and many of the multinational Chinese enterprises who have set up offices in the Netherlands and Luxembourg in relation to legal, tax and compliance issues. We also assist with translations and communications outside and inside China, at the local headquarters, in the local language, with complete understanding of local customs and at competitive rates.
