We are the go-to firm for China-related disputes
Practicing litigation across the United States and representing clients in arbitrations around the world, our dispute resolution team handles a wide range of matters. We have a strong team experienced in general commercial litigation, criminal litigation, intellectual property disputes, international arbitration, white collar, FCPA investigations, and compliance advice, including interfacing with regulators when needed. As the only international law firm headquartered in Asia, we offer unparalleled depth in Asia and are known for our China-related disputes expertise.
Our team advises across the full spectrum of dispute resolution, including:
- Intellectual Property: we develop creative strategies to protect our clients’ most valuable asset – their IP. Comprising experienced lawyers with a winning track record, we help to clients to defend their intellectual property from infringement and monetize their it through court actions if needed.
- General Commercial and Criminal Litigation: our lawyers have handled many high-profile matters in the US, for and against Chinese parties. We understand the challenges of representing Chinese companies in US courts in the current legal environment., and work closely with the China team to help our Chinese clients navigate the US court system. We understand the concerns that US parties may have in litigating against Chinese companies and are well-versed, not only in presenting and prosecuting a case, but also finding assets for enforcement when a judgment is handed down.
- International Arbitration: a truly cross-border team, we work seamlessly with our colleagues in global offices to handle arbitrations around the world. We regularly represent parties in AAA and JAMS in the United States, but just as often act as counsel in HKIAC in Hong Kong, SIAC in Singapore, and ICC in London.
- Compliance: compliance has been a hot topic over the past few years due to tension between the US and China. Our compliance team has advised on FCPA matters and performed cross-border investigations for listed and non-listed companies. We regularly advise clients on OFAC sanctions, US export controls, and other regulatory action that the US or Chinese government may take. With our unique hands-on knowledge and deep understanding of the two legal regimes, we are well-positioned to navigate the increasingly complex environment.
