OEM disputes A client was having problems with their China subsidiary. The person whom they had appointed as their Legal Representative was making secret profits from their business. When confronted about the secret profits he refused to hand over the company Chops and took steps to frustrate the issuance of new ones from the government. Our team was able to resolve this situation through the Chinese court, allowing the client to get back to business as usual. Direct Sales We have been involved with the formations of several companies that are involved in direct sales. The requirements for obtaining a direct sales licence in China are high and our full service legal team is able to provide all the services our clients need from the initial application, through to setting up company procedures and the remittance of funds to foreign parent companies in a tax efficient manner. Bespoke Services Our firm has helped hundreds of businesses with their China operations. One of our clients has over $3b in annual revenues and is on the Forbes Global 2000 list. We have assisted them with all of their needs, including intellectual property registration, intellectual property infringement actions, labour disputes and compliance management.
