Chinese law firms: A roundup of recent office openings (January 2021)

East & Concord Partners has received approval to set up a branch in Nanjing, its sixth office.

The new office will focus on construction and real estate, infrastructure, PPP, asset disposal, banking and finance, bankruptcy and restructuring, government and state economy, criminal and compliance, and foreign business. 

“Under the integrated management system, the Nanjing office will join our practices based in Shanghai and Hangzhou in providing legal services for clients in the Yangtze River Delta by sharing resources, advantages and working closely together,” the firm said in a statement.

The Beijing-headquartered East & Concord was created in 2014 following a merger between two firms, Tianda Law Firm (established 1993) and Concord & Partners (established 1995). 

Meanwhile, Guantao Law Firm has opened an office in Haikou, its 19th domestic branch.

The Haikou office’s main practice areas include corporate and commercial, dispute resolution, tax, real estate and construction as well as transportation. The main executive team is led by lawyers Ren Yun, Wang Su and Wang Gaoxu.

 “Our Haikou office is set up in the year that launches the establishment of Hainan Free Trade Port, which embodies a significant meaning for our legal services network and future expansion,” Guantao said in a statement.

Established in 1994, the Beijing-headquartered Guantao has over 800 lawyers including over 200 partners. The firm was ranked 26th in the ALB China Top 30 ranking of the country’s largest law firms.
