Squire Sanders (US) LLP
Lawyers in our Beijing office offer creative and culturally sensitive business and legal strategies to clients in such areas as investment ventures, technology transfer and other commercial transactions. With a Beijing presence since 1980, Squire Sanders received one of the first licenses issued to a foreign law firm in 1993 under the name Graham & James. Our office in Beijing is only one integrated part of our Asia presence, which also includes offices in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, Perth and Tokyo.
Focusing on foreign direct investment and commercial operations, the professionals in our Beijing office counsel companies throughout the world and across all industry and business sectors. Areas of emphasis include formation of joint ventures and wholly foreign-owned enterprises, acquisitions of assets and stock, company and asset restructurings, transactions involving nonperforming loan portfolios and commercial transactions of all kinds.
Clients benefit from our Beijing office’s experience and contacts as they develop business strategies in the region. Our clients include both foreign and domestic high-tech and traditional manufacturers, service companies, software developers, hotel and hospitality companies, energy and power companies, telecommunications and converging technology providers, banking and financial service companies, and infrastructure and construction industries.
Our Beijing office is home to professionals who have been born and raised in China as well as those who have been involved actively in cross-border China activities for many years. Our lawyers speak several Chinese dialects. As part of Squire Sanders’ international network of offices, they can provide seamless, integrated service to our clients wherever and whenever these needs arise.
