The Firm

Lin & Partners Attorneys-at-law was founded Dr. George Lin, a veteran practitioner with over 30 years’ experience, as an independent, boutique and powerful law firm. Leveraging on the expertise and extensive reach, the firm has not only maintained solid full-service capabilities, but also dedicated to building new areas of practice in line with the trends, which distinguishes itself from the peers in Taiwan’s legal market. Since its establishment, Lin & Partners has received numerous international recognitions as one of the best law firms in Taiwan.

Practice Focuses

While Lin & Partners has been highly-ranked in all areas of practice, the firm has laid emphases on the following in recent years:

Banking and finance: Lin & Partners has been recognized by international rating agencies as the top-ranked banking & finance firm in Taiwan. Apart from solid pure banking services offered to domestic and international financial institutions, the firm aggressively develops new business areas in response to the market trends, including electronic and third-party payment, sharing economy, fintech/blockchain/cryptocurrency, regulatory sandboxes and various new financial products.

Capital markets & Securities: Lin & Partners has diverse experience in securities law covering a variety of securities transactions – debt, equity and derivative offerings, structured notes and IPOs. Recently, the firm has been dedicated to the new “Taiwan’s Hidden Champion” concept and worked closely with leading private equity to invest in quality targets in Taiwan.

Dispute Resolution: In 2019, Legal500 ranked Lin & Partners as a Tier 1 law firm in Dispute Resolution. Lin & Partners provides clients with complete range of dispute resolution services with effective and versatile solutions. In recent years, the firm has successfully litigated in extremely difficult cases, overturning adverse legal precedents as well as unfavorable judgments in the 1st and 2nd instances to secure victory for the clients. Also, Lin & Partners has particular expertise in cross-border litigation and arbitration. Leveraging on its strength and independent status, Lin & Partners has been one of the top choices for international clients when seeking dispute resolution services in Taiwan.

Energy: Lin & Partners distinguishes itself from other law firms in Taiwan in its dedication to developing energy practice well before Taiwan’s new Energy Act took effect. The firm has advised Taiwan Power Corporation, the state-owned monopoly, on various matters covering nuclear plant operations and waste disposal, and particularly on strategies for its corporate reorganization pursuant to the new Energy Act, the largest corporate restructuring in Taiwan’s history. Lin & Partners also advises one of the world’s largest energy conglomerates on its operations in Taiwan, and has participated in Taiwan’s offshore wind development project.

Gaming: Lin & Partners’ gaming practice is the pioneer and leader in Taiwan, which commenced with the advice to the Taiwan government on the legislation and establishing the regulatory regime. The firm has since advised gaming operators on the offshore online gaming, as well as the support and ancillary technical services to offshore gaming operators.
