China Commercial opens office to tap Quanzhou market


China Commercial Law Firm has opened an office in Quanzhou, Fujian province, to explore the legal needs of local private enterprises and beef up its cross-border services, managing partner Gao Shu said.

The new office covers areas in corporate compliance, customs, cross-border services, non-performing assets, restructuring and insolvency, finance and intellectual property.

Quanzhou, which is a key port city in the Belt and Road Initiative, had been the eastern terminus of the historical sea trade route between China, the Middle East and Europe. The city’s GDP had been ranked first in Fujian province for more than two decades until 2021, when it was surpassed by the capital city of Fuzhou.
