O’Melveny’s Qiang Discusses Changing Climate for Foreign Companies in ChinaMay 08, 2015
O’Melveny & Myers partner Li Qiang recently spoke to Brunswick Review about how a more reform-minded government and a renewed look at corporate values may benefit multinational corporations doing business China. In the May 8, 2015, article “Chinese Dialogue,” Qiang suggests that multinational corporations establishing in China ensure they understand the corporate governance rules and how they differ from what the company may be used to, maintain and communicate their corporate values, and seek a dialogue with the government. He also emphasizes the importance of the Shanghai Free Trade Zone, which he notes could eventually influence national corporate governance, becoming the “Delaware of China.”
Qiang is a member of the Firm's Mergers and Acquisitions Practice. He advises multinational and Chinese corporate and fund clients on their cross-border M&A, joint venture and direct investment projects.
