Our knowledge, expertise & publications
With significant trade between China and Switzerland, many clients need expert advice to navigate the challenges of vastly different legal frameworks, whilst working with different cultures and languages.
Our China Desk team, consisting of Chinese speaking Swiss and Chinese lawyers, provides you with the legal bridge you need to effectively complete investment and trade deals, and manage disputes. Our advisors respond to your business needs, identify legal risks considering your business models, present options, and give you recommendations in clear language so that you have a solid basis to take your decisions.
As a Swiss client investing in China’s emerging consumer and luxury goods economy, life sciences, digital industries, or manufacturing capacity, we can act as your legal partner from entry to ongoing development. We are familiar with the needs and challenges our Swiss clients are facing when doing business in China, which allows us to swiftly grasp the problem and to give you pragmatic and smart legal advice that is directly applicable in China. Over the last 15 years, we have established a network of solution-oriented Chinese lawyers, which allows us to request their dedicated support also at short notice.
As a Chinese client looking to do business in Switzerland, we can help with establishing your regional headquarters, sales centers, R&D facilities and other enterprises in Switzerland. Acting as a one-stop legal service provider to you, our expert teams work seamlessly together and ensure that your Swiss enterprises are ready to operate when and how you want. When investing into or acquiring a Swiss company, we provide to you the legal, IP and tax due diligence on the target company as requested: getting to the point quickly and identifying deal breakers and major legal risks. We draft clear M&A transaction documents and negotiate effectively. We make it easy to deal with us not only by communicating effectively in Chinese, but also by acting proactively and responsively.
