Tian Yuan Law Firm recently announced that its Suzhou branch was up and running.
Steven Zhu, the managing partner of Tian Yuan, told China Business Law Journal: “Tian Yuan’s Suzhou office will integrate resources and co-ordinate with Shanghai and Hangzhou offices to strengthen its Shanghai-centred legal network in Yangtze River Delta.
“Suzhou’s legal market mainly focuses on civil law, business law and regular legal counsel. Overall, the market has huge potential,” said Zhu.
The firm has 41 lawyers based in the Suzhou office, including partners Xu Wei, Wang Tao and Liu Yiming, and Liu Qiumei and Zhang Jing.
Tian Yuan wants the Suzhou branch to integrate the firm’s experience in capital markets, biomedicine, TMT and the internet, and to provide localized legal services for Suzhou enterprises, with support from Shanghai and Hangzhou.
