China has become an integral part of the global economy. The second largest economy in the world is also one of the most important trading partners in Asia for Germany. Economic relations between the two countries have developed extremely dynamically in recent years. Numerous German and other European companies have branches in China and many Chinese companies are now also making direct investments in Europe.

Luther, in cooperation with the Chinese partner law firm Shao He Law Firm in Shanghai, has been advising German and European companies on all business law issues in China for decades. In addition, our China Practice Group (China Desk) in Germany supports Chinese investors in cross-border M&A transactions, restructurings and IPOs, as well as on the establishment of companies and joint venture projects in Germany and Europe. Our team of experts combine in-depth practical knowledge in important legal issues for inbound projects (investments in China) as well as for outbound projects (investments from China). The many Sino-German investment projects that our team has successfully supported are proof of our expertise.

Together with our partner law firm in Shanghai and with our China Desks across several offices in Europe our China team with a total of more than 30 German and Chinese professionals offers tailor-made advice in German, English or Chinese, no matter where you are located.
