Bird's Eye View: Comparing Chinese Investment into North America and Europe
Chinese investors poured a record US$40 billion into Europe and North America in 2015 as they continue to identify new business opportunities in the regions.


Our Amsterdam office advises clients on some of the most significant transactions in Europe, including Daimler's acquisition of Athlon Car Lease International for €1.1 billion, a deal spanning 15 jurisdictions, and Cosmo Pharmaceuticals' €330 million IPO of its subsidiary Cassiopea SpA on SIX Swiss Exchange.

With 180 lawyers, tax advisors, notaries and economists, Baker & McKenzie Amsterdam offers Dutch and foreign multinationals local and cross-border legal and tax advice. Known in the market for our innovative, pragmatic approach, we help clients seize opportunities, mitigate risks and resolve complex business, legal and tax issues. Our office was the first Dutch law practice to join a multinational network and create an integrated civil, fiscal and notarial practice.

The Amsterdam office has a deep understanding of the local market combined with a global outlook, with Asia, Japan, China, Latin America country desks and a US Focus Group dedicated to advising companies on inbound and outbound investments involving those jurisdictions. Relying on a close-knit team of over 4,200 locally qualified lawyers around the world, we are uniquely positioned to guide clients in their cross-border endeavors and help them achieve their business objectives.
