China General Legal Counsel

China Business Lawyer, China Commercial Lawyer

Commercial law, also known as business law, is the body of law that applies to the rights, relations, and conduct of persons and businesses engaged in commerce, merchandising, trade, and sales. It is often considered to be a branch of civil law and deals with issues of both private law and public law.

Business litigation, in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and elsewhere, is almost an inevitable and necessary part of doing business. Any firm dynamic—including growth, governance succession, acquisitions and mergers—necessarily raises the likelihood of business disputes. A proactive approach to any of these situations begins with effective contracts, but disputes, once they arise, can often be mitigated through mediation and arbitration, two legal routes that prove to be cost effective over business litigation.

As a China business law firm with extensive experience around business transactions in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, we are experienced and equipped to service a broad variety of business law needs:

• Litigation prevention: A first priority is to avert lawsuits, which we do through holistic thinking and proactive counsel of clients.
• General business litigation: Whether it be breach of contract, matters relating to insurance coverage, negligence, commercial collections, enforcement of judgments or professional malpractice, effective legal representation can bring such matters to timely and satisfactory resolution.
• Internal ownership disputes: When co-owners of businesses are in disagreement, there can be both emotional and significant financial issues involved. Negotiations, litigation and settlements in the midst of complex issues can be managed while preserving the enterprise through skilled legal counsel.
• Employee suits: In a competitive world, new and departing employees present certain business challenges and legal concerns. Key employees must be trusted with proprietary information, and some of them commit breach of employment contracts or make unfounded commission, compensation or wage claims. Other times, claims of discrimination, sexual harassment and other matters are the source of litigation.


China personal injury lawyer

Personal injury lawsuits cover a wide spectrum of injuries and accidents, including car accidents, toxic exposure and poisoning, defective products and other legal issues. As China personal injury lawyer, we provide information on these areas as well as many of the other most common personal injury claims. If you have recently been injured due to another party's negligence, this information will be very useful to you.

Personal injury laws are affected by a variety of complex federal and state laws. These laws are designed to protect the individual from the negligence or deliberate harm of others and to provide recourse in the event of injury. Because these laws vary from state to state, they can be very difficult to interpret, particularly during a traumatic situation. A personal injury attorney can help you determine your legal rights, give you examples of personal injury settlements and give you an idea of your chances of receiving compensation for your losses.

Some of the civil wrongdoings that can result in personal injury, such as assault and battery, are also considered criminal acts. In these cases, a separate criminal proceeding may take place to address the criminal charges. A personal injury lawyer can help you file a claim for compensation regardless of whether the defendant in the criminal proceeding is found guilty. If you or someone you know has been injured due to the negligence or deliberate malice of others you should contact a personal injury attorney immediately to determine your legal rights.

Because personal injury encompasses so many areas of law, some personal injury lawyers specialize in only one area, such as mesothelioma or defective products. Other firms practice in all areas of personal injury. If you or someone you love has been harmed due to the negligence or wrongful actions of another person, you may want to consider hiring a personal injury attorney.

China Lawyer Philosophy

The goal of this china law firm is to provide the best possible representation in civil litigation and transactional matters for all of our clients, and to achieve the specific objectives of the clients, and our China lawyer help clients make crucial legal and financial decisions affecting their business and personal affairs.

We offer common sense legal solutions so that clients can make educated choices, to help solve legal problems expeditiously and cost effectively. Because the legal system is grossly inefficient and often times "not user friendly"  to the average person or small business owner, and because adversaries frequently advance frivolous or unreasonable, counter intuitive positions and claims, and courts make bad decisions and have biases, the firm believes in practicing preventive law, and advises clients accordingly before an issue becomes a potential legal claim.

If litigation is necessary, we try to settle cases as quickly as possible, and exploit and dispose of frivolous claims or defenses for their true nature. If we have to take a case to trial, we conduct discovery, try every case to win, and try to shift costs and attorneys fees to the losing opponent, to the extent permitted by law.

Our China lawyer practice with an ethical approach, and comply with the ethical rules that must be followed by members of the China National Bar and attorneys admitted before the trial and appeal courts. As a professional fiduciary, the firm maintains client funds in separate trust accounts in large financial institutions. We comply with State Bar Rules, and local and state rules of the Court. As officers of the Court, we are civil toward our attorney opponents, and have developed good working relationships with the judges of China. This spirit of professional courtesy and cooperation fosters the expeditious and favorable settlement and resolution of cases that benefits clients everyday.

We are proud to say that we have developed a client base that spans the United States. From Shanghai to Beijing and in many of the 30 provinces, we receive referrals from other law firms and current clients who trust us to litigate and resolve their litigation that has been filed in China Courts. We take pride in our diversified civil practice, with a national client base.
