Today’s contribution to the “Window Abroad” introduces our partner legal office seated in the Far East, specifically in China. The office, IPO Pang, was established in 1990 in Shanghai; over the years, they have gained considerable experience with an international clientele, which can be shown, among others, by the existence of their branch office in the USA. The office focuses primarily on investors and businesses coming from abroad whom it helps to enter successfully the Chinese market. From the specialist point of view, IPO Pang specialise in founding firms and cross-border joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, direct foreign investment law, general business and corporate law and other associated areas. Their highly practical and client-oriented can be seen in Mr Peter C Pang’s (managing partner) article which summarises an overview of the basic points every foreign investor and businessperson ought to realise before they start doing their business in China.
