Beijing: Pursuant to the rules and regulations of the People’s Republic of China (PRC), Cadwalader, as an international law firm, is not permitted to practice PRC law in its Beijing office. We provide advice to our U.S. clients based on our prior experience in cross-border China-related transactions and our understanding of the PRC legal environment and, where appropriate, we engage registered PRC law firms with qualified PRC lawyers to work alongside our legal professionals. Cadwalader provides legal advice to its PRC clients on U.S. matters with the support of our U.S. lawyers.
Established in 2010, Cadwalader’s office in Hong Kong, Asia’s largest financial center, enables the firm to serve clients in this fast-moving market that is at the center of international banking, investment and trade. Through our association in Hong Kong with Joseph P.C. Lee & Associates, a Hong Kong law firm, we provide Hong Kong–based support on local legal issues and on global matters by leveraging the expertise of attorneys in our offices in the U.S., EU, and mainland China.
Coupled with the firm’s Beijing office, Cadwalader has a formidable Asia Pacific presence from which to provide premier legal services to leading U.S. and U.K. financial institutions and multinational companies doing business and investing in Asia as well as Asian-based entities in their international business activities and investments in the U.S. and throughout the world. Our Asia team is comprised of multilingual Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese), U.S. and English trained lawyers who advise on a wide variety of legal and business issues. Our ability to integrate our market knowledge of Hong Kong and the PRC with our experience with U.S. and E.U. law enables us to deliver commercially-astute efficient and practical legal solutions to cross-border transactions.
The Hong Kong office of Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP operates as a foreign law firm registered with the Law Society of Hong Kong.
