For more than 20 years, Troutman Sanders' lawyers have been serving clients doing business in Asia. Our Hong Kong office was established in 1997 and combined with our team in Beijing and Shanghai we have more than 30 legal professionals assisting Asian, North American and European-based companies to invest and do business in Asia. Our Asia team and U.S. lawyers also have significant experience in assisting Asia-based clients with their U.S. investments and operations. Our clients have relied on our Asian legal professionals to help successfully consummate transactions in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, India, Indonesia, Korea, Thailand, Singapore and the Philippines.
Most members of our Asia team are bilingual or trilingual, and all live in the cities in which they work. All partners and associates on our Asia team are qualified in either the U.S., Canada or Europe, and the majority of our lawyers are also qualified to practice law in either Hong Kong or the PRC.
As part of an international law firm with more than 600 attorneys helping clients in over 50 practice areas, our Asia team is able to draw upon practice area, industry and jurisdictional expertise from throughout Troutman Sanders.
