When faced with complex legal issues, we provide our clients with rigorous legal advice, while still providing practical legal risk analysis and creative solutions based on our wealth of practical experience.
Han Kun's strength lies in providing comprehensive, integrated legal services which cover direct investment, mergers and acquisitions, general corporate and commercial matters, employment, corporate compliance and regulatory matters, taxation, foreign exchange, competition law, intellectual property, cybersecurity and data protection, capital reduction, winding up and bankruptcy, and dispute resolution.
We have assisted numerous clients to make their mark in China, whether by greenfield investment or cross-border acquisition. Foreign direct investment is a key practice area of ours as it represents the source of foreign business in China. Benefiting from our many years of practical experience and overseas study and training, our lawyers understand how our clients think and communicate, and fully appreciate the differences among legal cultures. Today, our experience covers nearly all major industries, and all steps of the business lifecycle, from establishment to expansion and strategic adjustment. We wish to grow with our clients and are always at the forefront of legal knowledge and practice to assist our clients in fulfilling their China strategies.
We have clients from many industry backgrounds, in different stages of development, and that are both foreign and foreign-invested enterprises. Our clients range from large global multinationals to small and medium-sized companies, and also include new businesses which have arisen in the internet economy. Our clients are often faced with a complex business and operating environment in China. Because of the differences in law and culture, our clients routinely demand a wide array of legal services that require theoretical analysis and also practical guidance.
