Shearman & Sterling was among the first global law firms to establish a Beijing office approved and licensed by China’s Ministry of Justice.  Since then, as China has emerged as a global economic powerhouse, we have worked closely alongside our clients as their businesses in China developed and expanded.  Today, in addition to international investors and investment banks, our clients include Chinese state-owned enterprises and small- and medium-sized private Chinese enterprises across a broad spectrum of industries.

Our lawyers have represented clients on many groundbreaking transactions.  Since advising on the first Sino-foreign joint venture between a Chinese entity and a US partner 20 years ago, we have continued to do precedent-setting work.  This includes the first successful M&A transaction done under the new Chinese M&A rules, and the first power project refinancing in the People’s Republic of China completed by a wholly foreign-owned enterprise.
