Commercial Transactions China Law

Written contracts are a crucial part of doing business in China. The execution of a comprehensive commercial contract is important not only for enforcement purposes, but also serves as the blueprint for how the parties will implement their continuing responsibilities. Your advisor should ensure that all major issues are covered, that your interests are protected, and that the contract is legally and practically enforceable.

Ensuring a good deal with your Chinese counterpart is often not easy. Whether it concerns purchase, sale, agency, distribution, license or another kind of commercial relationship, and whether the deal concerns domestic commerce or international trade, our lawyers and consultants will be able to assist. We combine a comprehensive understanding of commercial relations under Chinese law with extensive experience in structuring deals, drafting and negotiating bilingual contracts, and supervising a smooth implementation of commercial terms.
