Producing goods for export, but with an increasingly affluent domestic market, it is little wonder that both Chinese and foreign companies are looking to develop business links and opportunities. Clarke Willmott’s extensive local network provides access to combined UK and Chinese legal expertise and an exceptional opportunity to benefit from operating in China.

How our Chinese legal specialists can help

Working in China

For a company looking to work or invest in China it becomes apparent very quickly just how large and diverse the economy is. Having a law firm in one city may not be enough and local knowledge and expertise can be far more important when looking at sourcing or selling goods or services into the country.

Clarke Willmott has developed a network of Chinese law firms across the country that can provide the local business and legal expertise a company needs. From initial discussions in the UK, through to support at a local level in China, we can provide high levels of service, combined with the cost savings and benefits of using local firms.

Working in partnership

Through our links with law firms across China, we can help their clients when they have legal issues or requirements when investing and trading in the UK. We can also use this network when our clients are looking for local legal support and guidance in any area of China.

Working with Chinese lawyers

As the Chinese economy continues to grow, increasing numbers of Chinese firms are now looking to invest and develop their businesses overseas. At the same time, the recent economic slowdown has made Chinese businesses and their legal advisers aware of the problems that can occur when a client overseas ceases trading or fails to pay its bills.

With our knowledge of the Chinese market and growing panel of Chinese speaking lawyers, we are ideally placed to help resolve legal issues in the UK. Whether looking to acquire a businessnegotiate a contract or chase unpaid bills, we work closely with the Chinese lawyers to help them gain the best legal outcome for their clients.
