The local, regional and global experience of O'Melveny’s attorneys in China’s capital is quite unique, to the benefit of clients who rely on us to represent them across a broad range of industries and locations. As one of the first US law firms to set up in mainland China, O’Melveny knows the legal terrain well and our attorneys have the unequaled knowledge that comes with having long and continuous practices in China.
Our lawyers in Beijing—supported by O’Melveny’s offices worldwide—offer clients a full-range transactional practice, including foreign direct investment, M&A, capital markets, private equity and venture capital, technology licensing, tax, and investment fund formation and counseling.
With extensive regulatory knowledge and experience, our team routinely handles actions by the US and Chinese governments, including the NDRD, MOFCOM, CSRC, SAFE, SASAC, and SAT, among others. We represent multinational corporations in search of central government approvals and licenses to do business in China; US corporations stymied by US regulation of their businesses in China; and clients navigating China's Anti-Monopoly Law and international merger control rules. Beijing also is the center of O’Melveny’s tax practice in China.
Our Beijing office also handles litigation matters for Chinese and multinational corporations that arise from investment in and trade with China, including arbitration and mediation in China and other jurisdictions. Although foreign law firms cannot represent parties in Chinese courts, O’Melveny’s clients often seek counsel on litigation strategy or complex issues that arise in transnational litigation.
Immersed in the Chinese legal and business environment and fluent in Mandarin and other Chinese dialects, we assist clients with legal needs in China’s key commercial centers as well as in its emerging business locales, such as Shenzhen, Guangdong, Chongqing, Wuhan, Tianjin, and the Jiangsu/Zhejiang region. Our knowledge of China and its culture produces rich relationships with government and legal contacts throughout the country, as well as with local law firms—invaluable experience for our clients' growing business needs.
