DOCVIT adds partners

Liu Fu

Docvit Law Firm has hired Liu Fu and Hu Xiaobo as partners to join its Beijing office. Liu has experience in real estate and construction engineering, private equity and asset management.

Hu’s practice includes intellectual property rights, corporate governance, private equity fund products design, equity investments, M&A and restructuring.

Liu told China Business Law Journal: “The recent real estate market has continued to be weak and frauds have frequently flared up in the long-term rental platforms, which has made the entire market increasingly anxious.”

Real estate lawyers should help clients mitigate the information gap in real estate transactions, negotiate

transaction terms, and deal with transactions differently according to local laws and regulations and customary practice, Liu said.
