With over 30 years' experience in China, we provide 'on-the-ground' expertise that understands the country's dynamic business environment through long-established offices in Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai.

Established in 1999, our Beijing team advises Chinese and international clients on inbound and outbound cross-border transactions, capital markets issues, energy and resources, projects, and dispute resolution.

We understand Chinese business methods and corporate culture, and possess an in-depth knowledge of the Mainland's regulatory and political landscape.

Our team has expertise in a broad range of sectors, with particular strengths in energy and resources, infrastructure, telecommunications, media and technology, financial services, manufacturing and consumer goods.

As with all foreign law firms operating in mainland China, Herbert Smith Freehills is not permitted under existing legislation to render opinions on PRC law. Nevertheless, our foreign clients regularly seek our assistance on Chinese law issues. Our views are based on our experience of similar transactions in the past, our legal research and understanding of market practice. Should a transaction require formal PRC legal opinions or representation before Chinese courts, Herbert Smith Freehills works closely and has excellent relationships with China’s leading law firms. We select the most appropriate PRC law firm to advise on the particular type of transactions to fulfil our clients’ needs.
