Our clients span the globe and we are proud to have a strong U.S.-China practice with native Mandarin capabilities and flourishing strategic alliances with leading Chinese law firms located in more than 10 offices across the continent, including Shanghai, Shenzhen, Beijing and Hong Kong. We counsel Chinese, as well as other international companies, entrepreneurs, C-suite executives and global investors on the U.S., cross-border, tax and corporate consequences of various business transactions. We handle inbound and outbound investments, and help overseas clients who wish to do business in the U.S. market.
We help corporations, entrepreneurs and private equity firms with business structuring and corporate governance. We advise startups on financing and tax-efficiency, and we help clients explore the complicated tax laws surrounding their business transactions.
For our private clients, global families and family offices, many of whom have business investments and real estate holdings worldwide, we handle their Life and Legacy Planning and Trusts and Estates related matters. We also handle several areas of Employment Law, including Whistleblower and Discrimination claims.
As discussed under the Worldwide Gateway, we also work closely with in-house counsels to achieve their legal supplier diversity goals and can be retained to work in partnership with such key legal officers to enhance their company's legal supplier diversity collaboration arrangements with their preferred provider global law firms.
