We have a particular focus on China. We see great opportunities for collaboration between Ireland and China in terms of both outbound and inbound investment. We have a dedicated “China group”, which is a multi-disciplinary team of our lawyers focused on developing opportunities between our two countries and beyond. Members of our Group have experience of working in legal practice in the region, in particular Beijing and Hong Kong, and have advised on many aspects of Chinese law. The team supports the Firm’s long-standing international strategy to focusing to provide advice and support to clients in relation to their Chinese business interests and to Chinese companies looking at business or investment opportunities in Ireland.
我们对中国予以特别关注。在境外投资和境内投资方面, 我们看到爱尔兰和中国之间存在众多的合作机会。我们成立了专门的“中国团队”, 该团队由本所多部门不同专业领域的律师组成, 专注于开拓两国或超越两国间的合作机遇。团队成员均在中国相关区域特别是北京和香港具备法律执业经验, 并对与中国法律相关的事项提供咨询服务。该团队积极支持事务所的长期国际化战略,为客户在中国的业务发展意向提供建议和协助, 并为在爱尔兰寻求开展业务或投资机遇的中国公司提供建议和支持。
We have developed working relationships with many of the top independent business law firms in China particularly through our Chinese Lawyers Programme, with whom we consult on Chinese legal matters and interact with on all aspects of Irish and European law. Our team regularly visits China in support of client work. From this work and the insights we have gained from our Chinese colleagues in our Dublin office we have a very good knowledge and respect for Chinese business culture and how best to progress transactions in China’s regulatory environment and legal system.
We have forged extensive links with many Chinese trade groups, chambers of commerce, embassies and consulates. We are represented on or involved with many legal and business associations with a presence in China, including the Ireland China Association, the Hong Kong Business Forum, the Industrial Development Authority, Enterprise Ireland and the International Bar Association.
