More About Wan Li

The legal regimes in China, particularly in respect of foreign investment, corporate governance, and employment, have been developing tremendously and quickly over the past half century. A deep understanding of the unique Chinese market, the culture, the way of doing business in China and the way of development is crucial to foreign investors and legal practitioners. Wan Li has successfully helped many domestic and foreign investors by bridging the gap between different cultures and knowledge of doing business in China and overseas, and by advising a diverse range of clients on legal matters in labor and employment, dispute resolution, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property, real estate, corporate governance, and compliance. He successfully incorporates his knowledge of various practice areas in his services to clients, ensures effective communication, and offers one-stop solutions to cost effectively meet their continuing and emerging needs.
