We have been involved in several high-profile foreign direct investment (FDI) projects in a wide range of industries. Our services cover all stages of the project and the entire investment process.
We assist foreign companies in accessing the Chinese market through a variety of legal structures, such as greenfield investment, and mergers and acquisitions, based on their needs. We assist clients in determining the most effective deal structures, evaluation of potential business partners, selecting project locations, and performing due diligence on target companies and assets.
We also help clients draft, revise and negotiate transaction documents, as well as monitor the entire investment or transaction process to mitigate potential risk.
We keep our clients updated on the latest legal and regulatory developments in market access, foreign investment security review, foreign exchange control, anti-trust and other areas of foreign investment.
We draw on our extensive experience in FDI to provide the best solutions to legal issues encountered in each project. We provide many clients, including foreign-invested enterprises established in China, with the legal advice they need for their daily operations and on the latest regulatory developments related to their business interests, helping them identify and mitigate legal risks.
