Asia offers boundless, and sometimes untapped, opportunities for foreign investors, and navigating these complex and continuously evolving political, economic, cultural and legal landscapes has a unique set of challenges for each country in the region. Gide’s long established presence in Asia and deep expertise in emerging markets around the world provide us with a unique platform and vision to assist clients explore the region’s true potential. It also means we can support them through the development, consolidation and growth of their regional presence and activities.
With an established presence in the region of nearly 30 years, and a team of local and international professionals who are backed by Gide’s international network, we are able to deliver a unique mix of local market knowledge and global, cross-border expertise to our clients.
Providing a broad range of legal services to international and regional clients, Gide’s Asia practice is handled by a large, skilled and multilingual team of lawyers based in offices in Beijing and Shanghai in Greater China, who work regularly with our experts in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, as well as leading independent local law firms in the jurisdictions in which we have no physical presence. Our lawyers are highly experienced at local and international levels and are qualified in English, New York, French, PRC and Vietnamese law.
