Practice Areas

Robertsons’ China Practice has been assisting both local and international clients with their business and investments in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) for more than two decades.

Our team has significant experience in a wide range of PRC legal matters, our practice developing as China has moved from a low cost manufacturing centre to a booming economy with an ever-increasing emphasis on high-end manufacturing and the service industries.

We advise clients on the appropriate vehicles for establishing a presence in PRC, whether through joint ventures, representative offices or Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprises (WFOEs) and we also assist in the establishment and registration process.

In addition, we work with clients in dealing with the regulatory hurdles faced by their operations in the PRC.

Together with our Corporate Finance and Capital Markets Department, we have been highly active in recent years as counsel to both issuers and underwriters of a significant number of PRC companies listing on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong.

Our Private Equity & Commercial Department has worked on a number of large fundraising and M&A transactions in the PRC across a variety of industries. We also advise clients on the structuring of their investments in the PRC.

In conjunction with our Litigation & Dispute Resolution Department, we work with clients in the often complex areas of the enforceability of judgments against parties in the PRC and on recoveries from assets located in the PRC.

Robertsons has a representative office in Guangzhou but we work with a network of firms in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Tianjin, Nanjing and Chongqing and, more generally, throughout China.
