The ‘first-class’ tax practice at JunHe LLP has a varied workload, which includes advising on the tax aspects of cross-border corporate transactions and group restructurings, assisting with PRC customs duties, and representing clients in tax disputes. 2016 and 2017 saw the team acting for a range of new and longstanding clients, including several household-name multinationals. Practice head Julie Cheng ‘distinguishes herself from peers with her professionalism, quick responses, diligent work and rich experience’.

Under the leadership of well-regarded practice head Tony Dong, King & Wood Mallesons provides integrated tax and legal services, as well as a compliance service covering tax, customs, antitrust and anti-bribery, among other areas. In a recent highlight, Yan Zhao worked alongside colleagues in the banking and capital markets departments to advice on the tax aspects of the issuance of an SDR denominated bond in China by the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development. The team’s diverse client base includes companies in the construction, healthcare, technology and insurance sectors. Daisy Duan and Bill Ye are also recommended.

FuJae Partners’ tax and customs practice is led by David Liu, who has a strong reputation in tax structuring. With a host of international experience, the team handles the tax aspects of inbound and outbound M&A, as well as contentious matters. Also of note is the firm’s strategic alliance with McGuireWoods LLP.

Tax boutique Hwuason Law Firm operates from offices in Beijing, Suzhou and Tianjin. The team handles contentious and non-contentious work, and it acts for private clients as well as large domestic and international companies. Liu Tianyong is the name to note.

The team at Zhong Lun Law Firm is particularly strong in international tax issues, and has ancillary knowledge of private client and wealth planning matters, where it represents high-net-worth individuals. In one recent highlight, it advised Linglong Group on outbound investments in several Asian and European countries. Peter Ni heads the practice, which includes qualified accountant and attorney Peter Chen and senior associate Mark Gao, whose practice spans VAT, business tax, customs duties and other matters.

Allbright Law Offices fields a team of multidisciplinary lawyers active in contentious and non-contentious tax matters, though it enjoys particularly strong renown for transactional tax matters. In the private equity sphere, it advises clients on the tax issues connected with fund formation, investments and exits. Kevin Wang is a key contact.

Dentons China has a well-rounded practice that covers both contentious and non-contentious tax. In 2016 and 2017, the firm provided tax planning and consulting services to numerous clients in matters concerning corporate transactions, restructurings and tax disputes. Xuefeng Leng and Xie Xiaojing head the practice.

Jincheng Tongda & Neal counts leading multinationals among its clients, including companies in the oil and gas, technology and transportation industries.

Jingtian & Gongcheng rebuilt its tax practice through the hire of experienced tax partner Lawrence Hu from MWE China Law Offices (Strategic alliance with McDermott Will & Emery) in 2016. The department has been particularly busy advising clients on tax issues prior to IPOs and outbound investments. The workload also includes transfer pricing matters, and administrative and criminal litigation proceedings.
