China Practice

Cross-border legal expertise has never been more important. China’s phenomenal economic growth and Hong Kong’s continuing status as the gateway to the mainland have combined to send trade transactions soaring and make the legal landscape complex, crowded and competitive. Boase Cohen & Collins thrives in this fast-moving and challenging environment, with our accomplished China team offering a full range of corporate and commercial services to Hong Kong, PRC and overseas clients.

We have long-standing and close relationships with mainland law firms that enable us to process transactions quickly, smoothly and securely. In particular, our connection with R&P China Lawyers, our respected partners in the International Alliance of Law Firms, with offices in Beijing and Shanghai, gives us the dual advantage of Hong Kong knowledge and mainland reach.

Many of our China team speak fluent Putonghua and are well-versed in PRC practices and customs. As a result, BC&C is ideally placed to offer clients sound advice and secure guidance with regard to cross-border transactions, whether these involve financing, mergers, joint ventures, property development, investment, dispute resolution or any number of other specialised fields.

We are particularly strong in the protection of intellectual property – patents, trademarks and designs – and are seasoned practitioners when it comes to cross-border issues that may involve licensing, contracting, exploitation or infringement.
