Dentons' China region consists of 44 offices, spanning all of the nation's provinces and autonomous regions. It was formed through the 2015 combination of global firm Dentons and Chinese firm Dacheng. Partly as a result of that combination, Dentons is now the largest law firm in the world.

Founded in 1992, Dentons China was one of the first partnership law firms in China and is now one of the largest. Dacheng began implementing its first five-year plan in 2004, and in 2007 the firm launched its strategy of building a global legal services network.Through the rapid expansion that has resulted, Dacheng lawyers gained access to global resources, referrals, knowledge and experience-enhancing delivery of cost-effective, agile and efficient service to clients.

From 2005 to 2010, Dentons China was named an 'Outstanding Law Firm in China' for six consecutive years, and topped Asian Legal Business' annual rankings of 'ALB China Top 20 Largest Law Firms' and 'ALB Asia Top 50 Largest Law Firms' for years.
