LEHMAN, LEE & XU China a practical Guide to U.S. Lawyers on China Law
China has undergone the greatest economic transformation in the history of the world. More and more American lawyers are coming to work in China, whether it is for Foreign Registered American Law Firms in China, Chinese State Owned Enterprises, Private Chinese companies, or as Foreign Legal Experts at local Chinese law firms or Chinese Patent and Trademark Firms . Alternatively, U.S. attorneys frequently represent clients that have companies and individuals that may be interested in doing business and/or acquiring a business in China. There are many business opportunities in China that may include distribution of products, sale of U.S. products or services, and manufacturing operations. Also, there are many individuals interested in having investment in China or a Special Purpose Tax Free Special Purpose Vehicle in Hong Kong or a Foreign Invested Enterprise in mainland China. The Chinese legal system is very different than the U.S. system. Therefore, it is essential for the U.S. attorney to have a general understanding of the China Legal system and to know how to deal with its clients' China opportunities and potential counter-parties. This LEHMAN, LEE & XU China Master Class conference provides a general overview of the China Legal system and the issues that U.S. attorneys who are working or may wish to work and live in China, or lawyers who deal with Chinese business matters may encounter when representing clients that have decided to enter the China market for business or for investment. This informational program will provide U.S. attorneys important details that their clients may need to know and understand when deciding to go to China to ensure a successful business venture.
