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.

More than 30 German and Chinese professionals at several locations in Germany and Shanghai have been advising German and European companies on all business law issues in China for decades. All team members have lived and worked in China, Singapore or other Asian countries and are therefore very familiar with the respective jurisdiction and the local customs and particularities in this dynamic region. In addition, Luther's China team 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. The many Sino-German investment projects that our team has successfully supported are proof of our expertise.

We offer our clients personalized advice – in German, English or Chinese.
