Opened in 2003, the Beijing Office is the Firm’s second office in Mainland China, and today numbers approximately 25 lawyers. Jones Day is one of few integrated international law firms with offices in Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. Many of our lawyers are PRC natives who bring invaluable local knowledge and understanding, as well as long-standing relationships with many key governmental bodies, to the service of our clients.
Jones Day recognizes the increasing sophistication of deals being carried out in China, and our Beijing lawyers are experienced in advising foreign investors in the areas of dispute resolution, antitrust, and WTO issues; energy and projects; intellectual property; tax; venture capital and other corporate and finance matters, as well as traditional foreign direct investment work. Jones Day also represents Chinese corporations and institutions with respect to their investments and activities not only within China, but also in North America, Europe, and elsewhere in Asia.
Jones Day Beijing is fully integrated into the Firm’s global network of more than 2,500 lawyers and affords our clients seamless access to substantial legal resources wherever needed, whether in China or around the world.
While committed to serving our clients, we are just as committed to the city of Beijing. Our International Legal Fellowship program awards grants to students in Beijing universities to encourage the study of law in China. In addition, our lawyers provide counseling for multiple non-profit corporations including Half the Sky Foundation, The Dandelion Project and The Alliance for Smiles.
