The firm: JunHe, founded in Beijing in 1989, was one of the first private partnership law firms in China. Since its establishment, JunHe has grown to be one of the largest and most recognised Chinese law firms. The firm has 11 offices around the world and a team comprising of more than 680 professionals, including over 200 partners and legal counsel, as well as over 480 associates and legal translators.

JunHe is committed to providing top-tier legal services in commercial transactions and litigation. The firm is well known for being a pioneer, an innovator and a leader in the re-establishment and development of the modern legal profession in China. Just as each industry requires specialised knowledge, its attorneys are organised in multidisciplinary practice groups so that they are equipped with deep expertise in market-tailored legal fields and industry sectors. To meet the specific requirements of each client and project, the firm forms project teams across different practice groups to combine the strengths of lawyers with the requisite skills to offer bespoke legal advice.

From the beginning, the firm has grown by virtue of innovation. At the forefront of great movements, JunHe continues to forge ahead of its peers and continuously innovate, whether by advising on unprecedented foreign investment projects during the initial period of China's reform and open campaign, on major transactions during the state-owned enterprise reform in the 1990s, on comprehensive debt and equity operations incorporating onshore and offshore capital markets in the new century, or on the continuous development of novel services and products in the internet era. JunHe is credited with many 'firsts' in the Chinese market. Growing with its clients, the firm has not only been honoured with high praise, but has also achieved a leading position in the Chinese legal industry. In the context of globalisation, the firm augments its strengths by collaborating with leading law firms in other jurisdictions. By building such alliances, JunHe overcome cultural differences and knowledge gaps. In turn, its clients benefit from a combination of rich local experience, smooth communications, a full spectrum of practice, global co-ordination and seamless representation in cross-border transactions.
