We are a pioneer in the field of Chinese outbound investments, having advised China-based multinationals and funds on their investments overseas for many years. We have counseled investors, including state-owned enterprises, international institutional investors, well-known private companies as well as private equity and venture capital funds. Such investments have spanned the globe from the U.S., Europe, and Australia to countries along the Belt and Road region and Latin America, in industries as diverse as health care, technology and new media, manufacturing, energy and mining, and real estate.
In addition to advising on investment agreements, capitalization transactions, overseas operations, and exit strategies, our Chinese-licensed lawyers also help clients obtain approvals from Chinese regulators having jurisdiction over China’s outbound investments, including the National Development and Reform Commission, Ministry of Commerce, and the State Administration of Foreign Exchange.
Our strategic alliance with Winston & Strawn allows us to leverage an extensive network of lawyers across its offices throughout the U.S., Latin America, and Europe with sophisticated transactional experience in both offshore and onshore structures. Our multi-jurisdictional teams regularly advise on corporate structuring, mergers and acquisitions, corporate taxation, employment compliance (including employment permits), IPOs, and securities regulation typically involved in cross-border investments.
