Located at the new 55-floor BM InterContinental Business Centre in downtown Shanghai, home of the new InterContinental hotel and conference center, the Firm’s office resides at one of the pre-eminent business destinations in the Zhabei district of Shanghai.
The Shanghai representative office will allow us to continue to serve U.S. companies regardless of their level of interaction within China, whether they have been operating in China for many years or are just planning to expand in the China market. We are also serving a number of Chinese companies that are making investments in the United States and/or are expanding into the U.S. markets.
Working with clients throughout an array of industries, Quarles & Brady’s China Law Group focuses on advising clients on foreign direct investment, mergers and acquisitions, security offerings (including U.S. listings), joint ventures, intellectual property, regulatory issues, commercial contracting and corporate and governmental relations. Our attorneys bring a deep understanding of the culture, laws, regulations, government and structure of doing business in China. Over the years, Quarles & Brady has developed strong working relationships with a number of prominent local firms.
The strength of Quarles & Brady’s understanding and experience of doing business in China provides a bridge of mutual respect and consideration in helping Chinese companies accomplish their business goals in the United States. Our Shanghai lawyers counsel Chinese companies on how to accomplish their business goals in the United States, from setting up a local U.S. office to developing relationships in the United States to structuring and consummating sophisticated transactions with multinational companies.
Thomas Stiebel Jr. will serve as the Firm’s chief legal representative of the Shanghai office.
