Homburger's China focus group is staffed with dedicated lawyers and tax experts from all practice teams with specific experience in inbound and outbound business with Greater China as well as litigation and arbitration involving Chinese parties.

Our China focus group has been established in response to the increased demand for expert legal services for Chinese clients, including SOEs, and for clients from Switzerland and other jurisdictions involved with China. The Free Trade Agreement signed in 2013 is expected to further promote the long-standing relationship between China and Switzerland. Our relevant track record includes corporate, mergers & acquisitions, banking and finance, insurance, debt and equity capital markets, private equity, investment funds, real estate, competition, intellectual property and technology, tax, labor law, restructuring, estates and white collar crime.

Chinese companies and private clients are being advised by our skilled lawyers who are experienced in cross-border transactions and have a good understanding of both Swiss and Chinese cultural issues. Furthermore, we are able to provide support in rapidly establishing the right relationships in Switzerland and getting things done efficiently. Whether you desire to work with us directly or wish us to collaborate with your partners, we can assist you in both cases.

For clients engaging in activities directed towards China, the China focus group is able to serve you in finding tailored advice that may include international and | or local professionals. Our involvement can range from simply establishing the right relationship to assisting you alongside Chinese advisers.

Our team also comprises specialists in international arbitration and litigation, including patent matters, who have been representing clients in disputes, deciding cases as neutral arbitrators or negotiating settlements involving Chinese parties for many years. We are happy to share our knowledge and tactical experience in solving cross-border issues and getting to practicable solutions.
