Regional coverage: Sichuan Province: Chengdu including Chongqing in China

Located in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River, the Chengdu-Chongqing Economic Circle is the most densely populated area with the highest concentration of industries and the most cities in west China. Chengdu is the capital city of the Sichuan province which is located in the southwest of China. Chengdu facilitates a large volume of financial transactions in Western China and is one of the country’s largest technological hubs. The city has four industrial zones and over 250 Fortune 500 companies present. Neighbouring city Chongqing is one of the four municipalities under the direct administration of the central government of the PRC; this results in increased support from the central government and other benefits including tariff-free zones and increased autonomy in policymaking. As a major economic hub, law firms in the city advise on a broad range of financing, cross-border M&A, restructuring,  and investment work, as well as dispute resolution which is of growing prominence for most firms that are active in the city following the establishment of the Supreme People's Court's 5th Circuit Court in Chongqing in 2016.
