Company background

BEITEN BURKHARDT is a leading independent, internationally operating Germany-based law firm, employing over 300 attorneys and tax advisers in 12 offices across six jurisdictions. We have been active in China since opening our Beijing office in 1995. This presence was expanded by opening an office in Shanghai in 2003. Here, we focus on advising multinational groups, major corporations, mid-market enterprises, and banks on all legal issues relevant to their business activities. BEITEN BURKHARDT has well established expertise in designing and setting up efficient corporate structures, including the acquisition of Chinese companies by foreign investors, the establishment and restructuring of Chinese companies, and advice on Chinese-foreign joint-ventures. Our practice further focuses on advising on all labour-related matters, protecting our client’s interests through comprehensive commercial agreements, and we have extensive experience in dispute resolution, especially through arbitration, as well all other legal aspects of the day-to-day business, including tax law, real estate law, environmental law, anti-trust law, and others. Our long-established presence and experience in China has allowed us to develop a deep understanding of the special challenges foreign investors face in China as well as the necessary skills to provide our foreign clients with effective advice which is not only based on our legal knowledge, but also on our understanding of the practical and industry requirements of our clients. We are in the position to communicate with all stakeholders directly in Chinese, English, and German and to take into consideration and demands of Chinese commercial and corporate law with respect to Chinese investment and economic cooperation. Clients tell us that our colleagues are more ‘hands on’, approachable and accessible than in many other law firms. In our understanding, efficiency is delivery of exactly what client needs in the right timeframe at the right price.
