We recognize that the ability to translate a particular language in the context of a particular culture is crucial to protecting our clients and representing their rights in the courts of the United States.
Making Headway into China: Procedures for Foreign Businesses Applying for Representative Offices or Representative Corporations in China
With the evolving and expansive economic growth in China, many US-based businesses seek to expand their operations with this new and exciting opportunity. Starting or developing a company in China can prove to be a profitable endeavor. However, attempting to do so without the appropriate guidance may lead to frustration and a waste of resources.
WHGC, recognized the opportunity for economic expansion in China when our Firm was founded more than a decade ago. Based on our experience with legal representation of multi-national corporations headquartered in China and other parts of the Pacific Rim, and with the help of our teams in Beijing and Shanghai, we suggest strategies for understanding and navigating the economic system in China.
