Welcome to Baker & McKenzie in China

Ranked among the country’s most respected law firms, Baker & McKenzie has been doing business in China for nearly 40 years. With offices in Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai, we offer clients a unique combination of local and global experience, helping domestic and multinational companies seamlessly manage even the most complex cross-border transactions.

Staffed by more than 300 qualified lawyers and consultants well-versed in the country’s systems, practicalities and laws, our China offices offer practical, innovative advice to help clients expand their businesses in China and around the world – consistently, confidently and with sensitivity for cultural, social and legal differences.

Serving clients across industry sectors, we represent leading local conglomerates and foreign multinationals in a wide range of high-profile, first-to-market transactions. One of the first foreign law firms to represent the Chinese government in foreign legal proceedings, our longstanding involvement has led us to become a trusted adviser to central and local governmental bodies. Our Firm chairman is a member of the International Business Leaders Advisory Council, an invitation-only group of 35 business leaders who advise the Beijing mayor on the city’s economic and social development.
