In May 2011, Blank Rome announced the opening of our Shanghai office in the People’s Republic of China.
Our expansion into China is driven by the needs of our clients with business operations around the world, including our China-based clients with growing consumer and industrial enthusiasm for foreign products and technology, resulting in increasing investment and strategic alliances by Chinese Companies in the United States. Blank Rome provides experienced legal representation for Asia-based clients doing business in the United States, and for U.S. clients doing business in Asia.
Many attorneys in our Asia Practice Group are fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese, and Shanghainese and have extensive knowledge of the cultural and legal systems that affect business and investment in Asia, with a special focus in the Chinese market.
