Services

WHGC is an international law firm that services the Pacific Rim with strategically located offices in greater Los Angeles, the Silicon Valley, and Beijing, China. As China has grown to become the second largest economy in the world, it has attracted a great deal of foreign investment. But to be successful, it is crucial to understand how business works in China and to learn how to do business the Chinese way.

At WHGC, our international business lawyers provide legal and practical business guidance to companies and entrepreneurs who want to begin or expand business operations in China and Taiwan. In both nations, we are knowledgeable of government regulations and business customs. Additionally, our strategic alliance with Dacheng Law Offices, China's largest law firm, provides WHGC with the ability to offer litigation services in China to WHGC clients across the United States. We can also provide our clients essential counseling about the Chinese market so that they better understand the complex and nuanced business culture of China. Our intimate familiarity with Chinese laws, business customs and local governments enables us to act as a valued go-between for our American clients and their Chinese partners.

Those who take the time to establish local relationships and to understand local, city, provincial and federal laws and regulations are more likely to achieve their goals. This is why U.S. technology companies, manufacturers and entrepreneurs turn to WHGC when considering investing and expanding in Asia.
