China (Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong)

We have been in China for over 30 years and, in 1993, were one of the first international law firms to obtain official approval from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) Ministry of Justice to register an office in Beijing. We have one of the most experienced China practices in the region, and have the ability to advise on Australian, Hong Kong, UK and U.S. law.

Services in relation to PRC law are provided through Allen & Overy Lang Yue (FTZ) Joint Operation Office  ,a joint operation in the China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone between Allen & Overy LLP and Shanghai Lang Yue Law Firm, as approved by the Shanghai Bureau of Justice.

We offer a substantial full-service practice from our three strategically located offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, advising clients on a broad range of national, cross-border and multidisciplinary deals and disputes. Our China practice provides a one-stop service to clients across a broad range of practice areas (including Corporate/M&A and Private Equity, Equity Capital Markets/IPOs, Banking and Finance, Antitrust/Competition, Intellectual Property, Dispute Resolution and Regulatory) covering a variety of sectors including Energy and Natural Resources, Financial Institutions, Industrial and Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Transport, Life Sciences, Real Estate, Retail and Consumer Goods, and Technology, Media and Telecom.

Our China team has a robust understanding and extensive experience of the many practical and legal issues that our clients, both Chinese and international, face in China, and the majority of our lawyers are fluent in both English and Mandarin.

We also advise Chinese clients on their investment and business operations overseas. We have a strong reputation for cross-border work and multijurisdictional transactions, leveraging our network of international offices seamlessly and cost-effectively.
