Following successful visits last year, Clarke Willmott is now seeing its links to mainland Chinese law firms result in a stream of reciprocal work as we introduce our clients to the legal expertise of local firms, whilst helping their clients expand their businesses into Europe.
Clarke Willmott has always believed in building links and helping clients to grow their business, we don’t just resolve legal problems. This philosophy led to the creation of a possibly unique way of working with UK companies looking to trade in China and for Chinese firms and their legal advisers who are looking to invest and develop overseas.
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.
Our clients are finding this network of local legal expertise and support gives them the best opportunity to benefit from operating in China, having access to combined UK and Chinese legal expertise.
