China > Labour and employment: PRC firms Tier 2

Guangzhou based PW & Partners is a leading firm on the Pearl River and represents major clients across the Greater Bay Area. The firm regularly assists foreign companies to comply with PRC regulations and, as more multinationals looked for advice closer to their operations in the wake of the pandemic, it was in a position to support them. Non-compete cases, mass lay-offs and equity incentives are major areas of expertise for the firm. Practice head James Peng is an employment specialist with more than 20 years of experience who provides advice on mass lay-off risk control, employee relocations and top-level management turnover negotiations. He is supported by Ozzie Ou, who specialises in terminations involving foreign employees. Associates Vivi Chen and Sam Chen assist on many key matters.
