Our Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong offices operate as an integrated unit with well-established affiliations with local and correspondent law firms in all major jurisdictions. In China we have the resources and depth of experience to handle the largest and most complex transactions, whilst navigating the cultural sensitivities to operate effectively and appropriately in the region.

Clyde & Co's clients come from a broad range of sectors and we advise both multinational corporations on their disputes with Chinese counterparties, as well as Chinese and Asian clients on their disputes in China, Asia or worldwide.

Our on-the-ground presence in Beijing means we frequently advise the state-owned enterprises that are often headquartered in Beijing.

The primary focus of the Beijing office is on outbound investment in natural resources, energy, infrastructure, finance, dispute resolution and international arbitration. We have advised Chinese state-owned energy groups on their outbound projects and investments in resource rich geographies around the world where our network of international offices plays a supporting role.

Named as International Insurance Law Firm of the Year by Chambers China Awards in 2013 and 2012, Clyde & Co have the leading insurance law practice in China, ranked in the top tier of the main legal directories.
