The Chinese Desk was established in 2002, preceding by many years similar initiatives at other Italian law firms. This desk has developed significantly over the past decade in light of the flourishing trade relationships between Italy and China.
The activity of the Desk, together with our Italian Desk in Shanghai and Beijing, is twofold. It provides legal assistance to Chinese companies that operate in Europe and offers legal counsel to Italian and European undertakings that are willing to enter the Chinese market. The commitment of the Desk to providing legal assistance to Chinese clients has resulted in the establishment of a fruitful relationship with certain Chinese public authorities and receiving from them prestigious awards.
Our Chinese Desk is comprised of lawyers with a solid knowledge and experience of the Chinese legal environment. The members frequently travel to China (Beijing, Shanghai, Ningbo, Guangzhou, Hefei, Shenzhen) and Hong Kong to participate in seminars, workshops and conferences.
