In 2007, Mannheimer Swartling opened offices in both Shanghai and Hong Kong and several experienced lawyers were recruited. Currently, the firm has about 20 lawyers/paralegals stationed in China, providing legal services to clients from the Nordic region (Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Norway). Most of such clients are recommended by our other offices around the world. Primarily, the firm's offices in China focus on the advisory work regarding the commercial and legal environment in China for businesses including foreign direct investments, merger and acquisitions, and have also heavily involved in the establishment and reorganization of our client’s Sino-foreign equity joint ventures and wholly foreign –owned enterprises.
The firm’s HK office also provides services such as providing a company secretary for a great number of companies as well as assisting with trade mark applications.
The firm’s HK office has an arbitration team consisting of Chinese and European lawyers. The team in Hong Kong is fully integrated with the rest of the firm’s global arbitration practice enabling it to draw from the firm’s experience and resources wherever they may be.
