Hear from our expert panel and meet a Chinese delegation
China is the world’s second economy and plays a vital role in global trade and foreign investment. The UK is the largest major market for Chinese investment in the EU. There are therefore many opportunities for solicitors to do legal business with China.
In September 2017 we are hosting a delegation of 15 Chinese lawyers that are scoping opportunities in the UK (see About the delegation below). As part of their programme, we are arranging a panel discussion to introduce them to our members.
Doing Legal Business between the UK and China
The Doing Legal Business between the UK and China panel discussion will be held from 17.00-18.30 on Tuesday 5 September 2017 at the Law Society. Five lawyers from English and Chinese law firms will present from experience. Our confirmed panel speakers are:
|Name (alphabetical by surname)||Position||Firm|
|Malcolm Dickinson||Managing Partner||Michelmores LLP|
|Zengli Li||Managing Partner (Shanghai office)||DeHeng Law Offices|
|Sergei Ostrovsky (chairperson)||Partner||Ashurst LLP|
|Kiley Tan||Consultant Solicitor||The Legal Director|
|Yuhua Yang||Partner||Llinks Law Offices|
Attending the panel discussion and meeting the delegates will help you learn more about the different ways of doing legal business between the UK and China. It will also introduce you to business opportunities in different Chinese cities and practice areas. We invite all panel discussion guests to a reception immediately afterwards from 18.30-20.00. This is a chance to build your network of UK-China contacts.
The panel discussion and reception are free to attend. Find out more and register
