Our Hong Kong office was established in 1995 to meet the growing demand of our international clients wanting to undertake business in China and more widely throughout Asia.
We use our extensive experience in China to help clients navigate the complexities of China’s business and regulatory environment. This includes advice on business structures, corporate establishment and finance, M&A, commercial arrangements, technology licensing and transfer, information technology and communications services and infrastructure, the protection and exploitation of intellectual property rights, dispute resolution and regulatory compliance. Our lawyers provide services throughout China covering Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen amongst other regions.
The global association between Bird & Bird and Alban Tay Mahtani & de Silva LLP (ATMD), one of Singapore’s leading law firms, came into effect from 1 January 2009, forming ATMD Bird & Bird. This association significantly expands our capabilities in the Asia region and supports our practices in China and Hong Kong.
The offices are headed by Managing Partner Matthew Laight.
