Regional coverage: Other notable firms in Beijing in China

Beijing, the capital city of the People's Republic of China, is a hub for legal services and serves as a centre for many law firms who have headquarters in Beijing alongside an extensive presence all over China. As the capital city it enjoys a wide diversity of companies, with Fortune 500 and international enterprises choosing Beijing as their base of operations, but the city also is home to the largest number of Chinese state-owned enterprises. The legal space is dominated by the Red Circle law firms, which include Haiwen & Partners, Jingtian & Gongcheng, King & Wood Mallesons, Zhong Lun Law Firm, Commerce & Finance Law Offices, Global Law Office, and JunHe LLP. All these elite firms have bases within Beijing or are headquartered there, alongside other large Beijing-based firms such as AllBright Law Offices and Han Kun Law Offices, which carry out notable transactional work. Due to the setbacks from the pandemic, investments have been decreasing in the market, but domestic mergers and acquisitions, as well as dispute resolution, are very active areas. On the dispute resolution side, the introduction of new economic models has caused an increase in disputes. There has also been an increase in compensation cases, and restructuring and insolvency work, especially for real estate enterprises. International investment increased over the course of 2023, but domestic work continues to dominate the legal environment. TMT related areas have also been on the rise, with more and more firms specialising in data privacy and security, IP, and internet-related matters. Despite the presence of major Red Circle law firms in Beijing, the city is additionally home to many smaller firms which continue to grow and expand their practices, such as Merits & Tree Law Offices.

These rankings cover firms which are not heavily featured in our national rankings, but are active across a wide range of practice areas and sectors at local or regional level.
