Corporate Commercial

Skip to China content


China is an enticing market in which to do business, combining a fast-growing economy with a strong appetite for new technologies and products.

You can see the opportunities - but how do you manage the unique legal and culture issues that are sure to arise when doing business with Chinese partners? In addition to that, you need to stay on top of legal changes that can affect your operations.

Gowling WLG is your ideal partner in China. You'll be working with a very experienced team that's used to assisting a range of organisations doing business in the country - from SMEs to world-famous global brands. We regularly assist our clients on setting up company structures, corporate governance, M&A due diligence, licensing and commercial contracts.

We have expertise in a variety of sectors, such as tech, fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG), life sciences, education, automotive and engineering. Other than general corporate commercial work, we also do a great deal of work on Chinese employment law and wider compliance matters.

While we have international backgrounds, we have a deep understanding of the nuances of the Chinese legal landscape and culture - and we're fluent in both Mandarin and Cantonese.

We have a wealth of experience in working with Western clients, and many of our team members have in-house experience. This allows us to truly understand what you want from a law firm.
