Asia , in particular Singapore, Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong are our major cities of focus outside the western sphere. Singapore has been a key legal hub in Asia for many international law firms, and is often seen as the second most popular jurisdiction to work in for many England and Wales qualified lawyers. It is mainly because of the buzzing social life, the Asian cosmopolitanism, as well as a much lower income tax compared to London. Most of our international moves happen between London and Singapore.
With the growth of Chinese economy and openness in Chinese international trade, we are getting more demands from firm’s branches in Shanghai and Beijing, for example, for qualified lawyer. More and more 4-7 PQE qualified lawyers are up for the challenge of working in their firm’s Asian office for some period of time. In particular, PRC and US qualified TMT lawyers are increasing in demands as many Chinese companies open their European headquarters in London.
With this in mind, we thus also provide Chinese language training to law firms and individual lawyers, who have an interest in understanding the Chinese and doing business with them. You are welcome to email to enquire.
