China

Every survey of the global marketplace confirms that China is one of the most dynamic regions in the world. But China presents a special set of challenges for corporations and organizations looking to either establish or maintain operations in this part of the world. Through our offices in Hong Kong (opened in 2005) and Beijing (2007), our lawyers have the knowledge and experience to help clients navigate complex legal issues and manage cultural issues essential to successfully build a lasting presence in the region.

Lawyers in our Hong Kong and Beijing offices advise clients on transactions involving foreign investment, including matters for banking and financial services, energy, infrastructure and project finance, corporate restructurings, telecommunications and technology, real estate, hotels, tax, securities and capital markets and customs advisory, as well as related litigation, arbitration and dispute resolution.

We also advise clients on all aspects of cross-border legal matters involving trade, investment and finance. Our clients have included a wide variety of government entities, major commercial lenders, multilateral development agencies and financial institutions, large manufacturing companies, real estate developers, hotel owners and operators, service firms, securities firms and other South American, Asian, European and U.S. enterprises investing in Asia.

Our team of lawyers is experienced in addressing the issues which arise during the structuring, documentation, negotiation and financing exercises associated with doing business in various Asian countries in addition to China. We have practical commercial experience from the simplest to the most complex transactions and offer constructive and innovative solutions. We work closely with local governments and regulatory authorities to bring complex transactions to conclusion.

Baker Botts lawyers are an integral part of their business communities, and their involvement in the local market and culture makes them vital business assets to their clients.

Our strength and ability in this region has been recognized by third-party sources. In addition to the firm being named “Law Firm of the Year - Oil & Gas” in five of the past six years by Who’s Who Legal, researchers for the most recent Chambers Asia publication recognized our China practice in the Energy & Natural Resources practice area. And The Legal 500 Asia Pacific researchers gave our Hong Kong office high marks for its work in the Projects practice.

We pride ourselves on the team approach we bring to every engagement, and we believe our collaborative approach improves the results we earn for our clients.
