A number of the firm’s litigators once were judges and prosecutors, and many are active arbitrators. AllBright also has access to a strong network of former government officials and legislators. Supported by a large team of translators and legal assistants, the firm’s professionals have undertaken many complex and high-profile transactions, and have won many landmark cases.
The firm’s lawyers have played critical roles in advising the government on, and actually drafting, many of the core Chinese laws and regulations involved in its daily practices today, and have been involved in drafting several international treaties concerning international investment, trade and other forms of economic cooperation.
AllBright’s practitioners possess a wealth of first-hand experience and legal expertise in providing effective solutions to the most complex of legal issues regarding the application of laws and regulations, governmental approval and legal procedures.
