The third most populous city in the world and growing, Shanghai is a major business and financial hub in China and the Asia-Pacific region. Hogan Lovells, one of the first and largest foreign law firms in China, opened our Shanghai office in 2003. Today our more than 35 lawyers, including 5 partners, bring to bear a deep understanding of the country’s complex and evolving cultural and regulatory environments to help clients navigate complexity, avoid pitfalls, and achieve business goals.
Whether you’re seeking inbound or outbound advice, we provide sophisticated counsel to and represent clients in corporate, intellectual property, regulatory, and litigation, arbitration, and employment matters. Our domestic intellectual property agency further enhances our capabilities by enabling us to conduct trademark and copyright matters directly for our clients.
Our lawyers in Shanghai have strong working relationships with leading local law firms throughout China to serve clients doing business across the nation. We also have long-standing cooperation arrangements with the Chinese bar and the All-China Lawyers Association, which further enhances our reach.
