Negotiating, drafting, reviewing and enforcing contracts that drive your business in China.


Contracts are the lifeblood of commercial business in China.  Contracts provide the framework through which business relationships are controlled, enabling each of the parties to attain their agreed upon benefits, while providing appropriate protections against violating the settled terms and conditions.  In turn, the value of an excellent contract, which has been skillfully negotiated and precisely written, is rarely evident - until one of the parties attempts to breach the contract (with the potential for such a violation having been substantially reduced by the knowledge that any violation will have serious repercussions).


Conversely, when contracts are poorly negotiated and/or written, they can become a source of unending anguish and drain on a business' financial resources.  Experienced contract negotiations and drafting will enable you to avoid these disasters, by avoiding the traps and pitfalls that other businesses all too frequently fall prey to.  You should always be looking to solidify your business relationships with well-structured contracts, so that you can focus on your core business and not the distractions that arise from disputes that lack a clear contractual formula for resolution.


How to hire an independent contract attorney in China


Preparing for your first meeting with a lawyer

Surely your first meeting with a lawyer is like a blind date.  You are not sure how the relationship will work, whether you want to go ahead; but you're willing to give it a try. In hiring a lawyer, you want to be sure that:
1.The lawyer can handle your case and have the expertise.
2.If possible, start the process of hiring a Contract Lawyer well before you need someone to cover for you. Allow yourself a sufficient amount of time to find the appropriate Contract Lawyer for your practice.
3.The fees are reasonable, and you can afford them; and
4.You feel comfortable working with the lawyer.

The Contract lawyer also needs to consider whether or not to take your case. If the lawyer doesn't have the experience for the case, or the case doesn't justify the kind of fees that the lawyer would normally earn, or if the lawyer isn't comfortable working with you, he or she wouldn't want to take the case.

Client Testimonial

One of the best China lawyers based in Shenzhen! I appreciated this Shenzhen lawyer's service because they helped me achieved my goals, though it was a tough mission. They are English speaking lawyers, so there are absolutely no communication barrier you likely encounter elsewhere. What impressed me is these Shenzhen lawyer's quick response and professional service, two characteristics which I treasure most. Although the Shenzhen lawyers are based in south China, they represent clients across the country, so you can also call them China lawyer! - Johnson youporn sex teen tube
