Law 6

Uncertainty is a common barrier for entry to the China market. Our experienced executives have accumulated years of practical experience in China and Asia, both on the ground and in the boardroom and this is your guide to China. We can minimize your risks, adding value in areas which may not even have been clear at the outset. An understanding of how to work in China and with the Chinese at all levels is vital in avoiding common mistakes. Further, in China you will need to know who to talk to and how and this can only come through time spent here.
