CHINA

We have developed a unique and effective approach to helping our clients succeed in China and now work with our Chinese clients as they expand abroad.

Our approach

Our China practice was built with the current and future needs of our clients—not on past models.

Clients need us to provide a solution for their China-related legal needs anywhere. We combine sophisticated U.S. counsel, international ability and unmatched local acumen to create powerfully effective legal solutions, including:

  • New entity formation
  • M&A
  • Patent, trademark and copyright protection
  • Dispute resolution and problem solving
  • Raising and deploying capital internationally
  • Compliance tasks in China and abroad
  • Hiring employees

Nixon Peabody has offices in Shanghai and Hong Kong, strengthened by an alliance with one of the region’s most accomplished and respected law firms.

On October 1, 2015, we combined our office in Hong Kong with leading Asian business firm CWL Partners to form Nixon Peabody CWL. This combination dramatically expanded Nixon Peabody’s presence in Asia with more than 30 lawyers and legal professionals in one of the world’s most dynamic economic centers. We had been formally associated with each other since 2010.

In the People’s Republic of China (PRC) we have an alliance with Hylands Law Firm. Our lawyers in Asia have a close working relationship, resulting in excellent levels of service for our clients.

In total, we have relationships with more than 300 lawyers in seven cities in China, with access to a cross-section of talent that provides our clients with comprehensive support for any China-related transaction or dispute.

We work with

  • U.S. and European companies expanding their operations into China
  • Chinese companies expanding into the U.S. and Europe
  • Investors, inbound and outbound
  • International private clients and wealth management
  • Nonprofits exploring new opportunities

Note: Nixon Peabody CWL is a solicitors’ firm in the form of a Hong Kong general partnership, registered with the Law Society of Hong Kong and is legally distinct and independent from Nixon Peabody LLP, a limited liability partnership organized under the laws of New York, USA, and its subsidiaries, associated, affiliated and related entities bearing the name of “Nixon Peabody” or “NP” as part or whole of its name, in the rest of the world.
