Clyde & Co Westlink JLV forms an important part of our China network, drawing together Clyde & Co's international network and the full-service onshore Chinese law capabilities of Westlink Partnership.

We are proud to be the first international firm to obtain a formally approved joint law venture license in Southwest China in 2013. Clyde & Co Westlink JLV is licenced by the PRC Ministry of Justice, allowing us to offer clients a ‘one-stop-shop proposition’ if representation in Chinese courts or issuance of official Chinese legal opinion is needed.
