Strategic partnership for a challenging growth market
Our China practice group provides entrepreneurs outside China the unique advantage of a comprehensive, multidisciplinary practice that incorporates knowledge of the Dutch and the Chinese laws and regulations, culture, language and business practices. Our services exceed those of a law firm - as strategic legal advisors we help to achieve the ambitions of our long-term clients.
Unrivaled experience and presence
We are the first Dutch law firm with a complete and officially licensed Chinese practice. From our offices in Shanghai and Beijing we offer localized services with a great advantage - our lawyers are fluent in Chinese, Dutch and English and can bridge the gap between the two cultures and legal systems. We advise international clients who want to start, consolidate or expand their business, and those who have a dispute in China.
We have been active in China since 1995 and have knowledge that is not always necessarily of legal nature, but certainly indispensable. Experience that helps in assessing situations and potential partners, evaluating a strategy’s feasibility within the framework of law and government policy, and in analyzing realistic risk. In this way, we assist companies in the Benelux and countries like Turkey and England to set up a promising economic model, and a durable position on the Chinese market.
Our practice group consists of 15 lawyers, plus Dutch support and paralegals in China, and two fully certified Chinese lawyers in the Netherlands.
