China Desk

With a branch in China since 2007, Bignon Lebray has become a key figure in the ancient empire. Our Shanghai office and China Desk in Paris are there for Chinese companies wanting to make their mark in France, Europe or even in Africa, as well as French companies hoping to develop into the Chinese market.

Our lawyers, with both French and Chinese backgrounds, assist their clients in all of their business dealings, setting-up and negotiation of capital projects, covering every aspect of business law: mergers and acquisitions, competition and distribution, employment law, tax law and intellectual property.

They provide expertise in creating suitable, adapted solutions, taking cultural and legal considerations into account.

For many years now, our team has been highly expert in the sectors of trade and distribution, wines and spirits, as well as transport and banking.

Good to know:

Our firm is a partner of the Franco-Chinese Economic Law Association (AFCDE).

The AFCDE was created on 6th October 1986 in collaboration with the Paris Bar. Bringing together French and Chinese experts on Chinese law (lawyers, magistrates, academics, company representatives), the AFCDE has continued to develop its scope and network since its creation, always striving towards its goal of deepening our knowledge of Chinese law, all the while respecting each other’s culture.
