Our deep understanding of Chinese business and corporate culture is complemented by access to the firm's Asia and global network, supporting Chinese clients no matter where in the world their business ambitions lie.

We offer expertise across industries, with particular strengths in energy and resources, infrastructure, telecommunications, media and technology, financial services, manufacturing and consumer goods.
