Our Greater China practice
Each team leader in our Greater China practice has worked in and with Greater China for over 18 years. Eight years ago, driven by the needs of our clients with business operations around the world, we opened our representative office in Shanghai. Of course, we can communicate fluently in Mandarin and several other Chinese dialects.
Blank Rome provides experienced legal representation for Asia-based clients doing business in the US, and for US clients doing business in Asia. We represent US Fortune 500 and other important companies in their operations within Greater China.
We are proud to have built loyal relationships with some of China’s largest private and state-owned enterprises, as well as with leading Chinese middle-market businesses and entrepreneurs.
Our extensive knowledge of the dangers and opportunities in cross-border investment, business operation, and dispute resolution helps our Chinese clients to navigate the increasingly complex challenges of the US legal, regulatory and litigation landscape, for example regarding:
· M&A, securities, private equity, bank lending, finance, international taxation;
· Patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, privacy, cybersecurity;
· International trade, import/export, sanctions;
· Maritime and transportation; energy; environmental; real estate; healthcare;
· Employment, insurance, other operational issues, and government relations;
· Compliance, corporate governance, anti-corruption, anti-money laundering
We strive to be your partners in success for decades to come.
