International Trade - China

A long history of advising on international trade law

King & Wood Mallesons was one of the first law firms in China to provide legal services in international trade matters when in 1997 we represented clients in the country’s first anti-dumping investigation.

We have a thorough knowledge of the Chinese legal system and World Trade Organisation (WTO) law. And we use this to offer a range of international trade legal services to both government agencies and the private sector.

Our expert trade lawyers can assist you in trade remedy investigations, WTO dispute settlement proceedings, trade negotiations, customs measures, and with import/export businesses. We have represented the Chinese Government in its WTO disputes and treaty negotiations ever since China’s accession to the WTO.

We assist several Chinese Government agencies – particularly the Ministry of Commerce – in WTO and treaty negotiation matters. We also assist private-sector clients from home and abroad in trade remedy cases, customs and general trade matters.

Our expertise includes:

  • WTO dispute settlement
  • Anti-dumping investigations and reviews
  • Anti-subsidy investigations and reviews
  • Safeguard measures investigations
  • Special protection cases
  • International trade and investment agreement negotiations
  • US Section 337 investigations.

We have a full team specialising in this area.
