China: Appleby Licensed To Offer Offshore Legal Advice From Shanghai
Last Updated: 2 May 2014

As you may be aware, Appleby has had a representative office in Shanghai since 2012, delivering fiduciary and administrative services to Chinese clients.

From 28 April a new licence to practise offshore law means that we become the first offshore firm able to support China-based clients on the ground with their legal and fiduciary needs.

Being awarded this licence means our offshore legal services are immediately available to Chinese clients and this proximity is a key milestone in our strategic plan. China is of course a thriving market and one that we understand deeply since we have been advising clients on their Chinese inbound and outbound transactions from Hong Kong for almost 25 years. Being able to practise from within China will catapult our strategy for Asia and China forward, and we are very excited about this prospect.

Appleby Partner Malcolm Moller will lead the development of our offering in China, supported in Shanghai by Associate, Kate Li Kwong Wing and Fiduciary Head of Business Development in China, Scott Reid as well as by our Greater China team.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch should you have any immediate needs. We very much look forward to doing business with you in the near future.
