Foreign Direct Investment
As a firm primarily focused on cross-border corporate practice, foreign direct investment ("FDI") has always been one of our core practice areas. We assist our foreign clients and their portfolio companies in China on matters of all aspects throughout the entire enterprise lifecycle, from establishment, daily operations, onshore reinvestments, financings, mergers and acquisitions, restructurings and equity transfer to dissolutions and liquidations. We advise many multinational companies and various types of foreign invested financial institutions in China, including commercial banks, insurance companies, securities firms, asset management firms and other financial institutions, on their financing transactions, market entry strategies, establishment of representative offices and branch offices, strategic alliances and establishment of joint venture entities in China in light of China's WTO commitments and China's regulatory regime and policy for foreign investment.
We have a great deal of experience with the applicable PRC regulatory regime and practice generally applicable to all types of FDIs (such as the anti-monopoly filing requirements for cross-border M&A transactions) as well as the laws and practice particularly concerning specific industries or types of transactions, and have successful experience in dealing with all sorts of China specific issues and problems frequently facing our foreign clients and their investee companies in China, such as land use right issues, capital contribution methods and schedules, valuation of PRC state-owned equity and assets, PRC tax issues, labor and employment issues, Customs procedures, IP registrations and protections, and foreign exchange concerns.
We keep close contact with all relevant PRC government authorities to ensure that we always have the most updated knowledge of the regulatory trend with respect to foreign investments in the gradually liberalized Chinese market.
