 for Herbert Smith Freehills. The London-headquartered law firm has also been work

ing with Hiswara Bunjamin and Tandjung in Indonesia in a similar fashion for the last 15 years.上海夜网女神会所

Gavin Guo, international partner of Kewei, said that they had submitted an application for the joint operation to the Shang

上海夜网hai Municipal Bureau of Justice earlier this year and it took them three months to get the green light.

According to Guo, the joint operation of law firms is different from a joint ven

ture and does not include equity options. The two law firms are still independent e上海夜网女神会所

ntities but share administrative resources and provide one-stop legal services to clients.

Such joint operation models are attractive for multinational companies with operat上海夜网

ions in China and outbound Chinese companies, said Guo. Before this, companies need to go to a foreign la

上海夜网女神会所w firm and a Chinese law firm separately for legal services. This can be avoided as communication with both the l

aw firms can be completed in the same office and will incur only a single charge, he said.上海夜网

“Given the current global economic and political uncertainties and trade friction, governments are tightening their scru

上海夜网tiny and regulation in areas like foreign direct investment. The joint operation model will play a big role in te

rms of transaction habits, disputes resolution and even company strategies,” he said.

The first joint operation was set up by the Chicago-headquartered Baker McKenzie and Beijing Fenxun Partners in April 201上海夜网女神会所

5. In an action plan rolled out in April 2018, the Shanghai Municipal Bureau of Justice said it will study the possibility of pro

moting the joint operation model to the rest of the city to further improve the business environment.上海夜网

Mark Cohen, senior fellow at the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology, said after the forum that “what the presi

to let go a little bit. I think that process hasn’t really been thought through so well in the US,” he said.

Cohen said it’s not as simple as saying every country looks after its

own priorities. “That may be true for a lot of smaller countries. It may be true even for lar上海夜网女神会所
