Fidelity assisted many global business conglomerates to gain entries into the ever-growing China market through the establishment of a wholly foreign owned enterprise or a joint venture. As the needs of every foreign company are different when dealing with business in China, Fidelity’s corporate attorneys are able to draw on their experience in trading, sale, procurement, investment, acquisition, restructurings, environmental matters, employee benefit plan and executive compensation considerations, government contracts, intellectual property rights, labor and employment matters, tax issues and regulatory concerns, as well as other specialized issues, which those foreign companies may routinely encounter.
As one of the very few law firms in China with the capacity to provide full scale of the legal services, many international and domestic business conglomerates often sought Fidelity’s advices for overcoming many of the challenges and obstacles involved in the complex cross- border transactions. Fidelity is proud to have the capabilities for delivering the most effective legal solutions that meet our clients’ budgets and time limitations.
