About Us

China Lawyer

Since 2010, I have authored and published the China lawyer Blog. Thanks for visiting.

Since you've clicked the "About" button, I'm sure you're hoping to learn a little more about the blog and me. I was licensed to practice law in China more than ten years ago. I am a senior attorney practicing in Guangdong Huashang Law Firm. My primary office is in Shenzhen, Guangdong, China. However, I handle cases all across the cities and provinces including Dongguan, Zhuhai, Zhongshan, Shunde, Guangzhou, Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, Hefei (which is my hometown) and other inland areas.  My practice includes representing and counseling foreigners on labor and employment law, family law, IP law, Corporation law, criminal defense through practical considerations and application of the law.  I also work on commercial litigation and other types of litigation matters, which you will hear me discuss much on this blog.

This blog discusses new and noteworthy developments in many legal fields in China. I believe over the coming two years, it'll become a place where those items are discussed, debated and explored. While we've had over 90,000 views of the blog since its inception, your involvement in the blog through suggestions, comments, criticisms and praises remains crucial to its long-term success.  Indeed, recently it's been suggested by one person that "Jumping feet-first into the blogopshere expanded the national reputation of lawyer Peter Chu as the go-to guy on China Foreign-related Law issues."  That's high praise and I'm humbled by the outpouring of support that has been displayed over the years.
