How to Find and Choose the Best English Speaking Lawyer in China

We are China English speaking lawyers. Most of our clients are foreign nationals and foreign companies. We have lawyers in Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Suzhou, Nanjing, Qingdao, Fuzhou, Hainan, Hefei, Wuhan, Xian, Changsha, Xiamen and other cities. As China is now a "factory of the world", so many foreign businesses buy products in China. Thus it's essential to find an English speaking lawyer as your legal counsel in China. Unfortunately, sometimes foreign companies or individuals have to face these problems during the transactions: late delivery, quality defects, IP and business secret infringement etc. When damage is incurred, it's proved that a PO in simple form cannot protect their benefits sufficiently and effectively. Thus, we provide views and suggestions to guide you how to cope with damages because of the counter party's breach of contract, such as: what kind of purchase contract you actually need? Is a signed contract in original necessary? How to choose jurisdiction and governing law for disputes arising from the purchase? And, under which circumstances should there be a penalty for breach of contract stipulation in your purchase contract. China law blog can serve as your legal counsel in South China Areas, including Shenzhen, Dongguan, Guangzhou, Huizhou, Nanhai, Panyu, Shekou, Jiangmen, Foushan, Zhoushan and other cities.

Choosing the right law firm can be one of the most important decisions you will ever make. You hire a law firm because you have a legal problem, which will entail either money / property, or possible jail time. With so much at stake, you want the best legal representation. That's why finding the right lawyers for you is so important.


Hire a China lawyer to draw up a contract or agreement

The ability of individuals, partnerships, corporations and other types of entities to enter into binding and legally enforceable contractual obligations is truly one of the cornerstones of a civilized society. Contract law has evolved into an immensely complex and intricate component of our modern legal system. Although many types of contracts can be handled in the routine course of business, as contracts increase in size, scope, value or complexity, the need for competent legal advice also increases in a concomitant fashion.

A Non Disclosure Agreement is an agreement under which a party (the "Recipient") agrees not to disclose proprietary and confidential information ("Confidential Information") that it receives from another party (the "Owner"). When you plan to do business with Chinese partner, it's essential to enter into a non-disclosure agreement with the Chinese supplier and buyer. As a experienced China lawyer, I strongly recommend you to do so, in light of plenty of international business disputes arising from Chinese business bodies with foreigners and companies. This type of agreement may be useful in a variety of circumstances. For example, a company might choose to share information with a web marketing consultant for the purpose improving its on-line sales through its web site. In such a situation, the company would probably be sharing product and customer information with the marketing consultant and would want to protect this information from disclosure by the consultant to third parties.


China Legal Counsel Provides: How to enter into a lease agreement / lease contract in China

Your lease or rental agreement and the security deposit you require must comply with your state and local laws. The document cannot contain language that attempts to take away any of your tenant's legal rights — to file complaints, sue for liability or injury, or get the security deposit back promptly if the unit is left in good condition.

How much the tenant pays for the security deposit is usually limited by the state and local government. Some communities require you to pay interest on your tenant's money.

Capacity to Contract:
The parties to the real estate lease contract must have the legal capacity to enter into the agreement. Age, mental competency and other issues are considered. A minor could not enter into a lease, thus this requirement would not be satisied and the lease would not be valid.
Legal Objectives:
The purposes of the lease must be legal. If the property to be leased is to be used for illegal purposes, the lease would be invalid.
Offer and Acceptance:
All terms of the contract must be agreed upon by both parties. The owner or landlord would offer these terms to the tenant and the tenant would accept them, signified by their signatures to the lease.
Normally, consideration for a valid lease contract is in the form of rental payment(s). However, it could be in some other form, such as a trade of labor or property improvements for tenancy. Rent is normally fixed for the life of the lease, and cannot be changed unless agreed to in writing by both parties.
