China Desk Germany

null

We offer outstanding benefit to our Chinese and German clients by combining the highest global standards of business and law with local excellence of service maintaining at the same time the depth, quality and scale of resources necessary to meet our clients' needs whenever and wherever they arise, irrespective of geography or time zone.

We have set up the Clifford Chance China Desk in Germany with a team of specialists including lawyers from all our German and Chinese offices with particular strengths and knowhow through the diversity of its members and cultures.

The China Desk team is headed by Dr. Stefanie Tetz, former head of the firm's Beijing office (1996 – 2000), now practicing law from our Clifford Chance office in Munich, Germany. Through her many years of experience as a member of our China practice, we offer our clients an in-depth knowledge and a profound understanding of the challenges Chinese investors are facing when investing in Germany and the challenges foreign companies are facing when investing in China.

We focus on:

  • acting for global and major regional clients investing in China (including private equity)
  • acting for major Chinese companies (including state owned enterprises) and Chinese financial institutions investing in Europe and particularly in Germany
  • establishing strong relationships with Chinese companies accessing globally available capital through IPOs
  • strengthening relationships with key international investment banks focused on China

We set the standard for international law firms and have broad experience advising Chinese companies on outbound acquisitions, including acquisitions in Germany and advising German companies on activities and investments in China.

Our German China Desk works closely with colleagues from Clifford Chance offices in China and with our dedicated team of China Experts across our global network, and is therefore able to advise on strategic and challenging transactions across all major markets often with multi-jurisdictional dimensions.

通过结合最高的全球业务及法律水准和杰出的本地服务水平,同时保持随时随地满足客户要求所需资源的深度、质量和规模,我们将确保中德客户能够从我们提供的服务中受益。

我们在德国特别成立了由来自德国和中国各代表处的专业律师组成的中国业务组。通过人员和文化的多样化融合,中国业务组拥有具有针对性的业务能力和专业知识。

我们的中国业务组由施芳妮博士牵头。施芳妮博士曾于1996年至2000年担任高伟绅北京代表处首席代表,目前在高伟绅慕尼黑代表处工作。凭借多年的中国业务经验,我们将为中国投资者在德国投资以及外国公司在中国投资所面临的问题提供深入的见解和分析。

我们的中国和德国业务主要涉及下列领域:

  • 为全球各主要地区客户在中国的投资(包括私募股权)提供代理服务
  • 为中国大型企业(包括国有企业)和中国金融机构在欧洲(特别是德国)进行投资提供代理服务
  • 与通过IPO进入全球资本市场的中国企业建立密切的合作关系
  • 加强与侧重中国业务的主要国际投资银行之间的联系

高伟绅确立了国际律师事务所的标准,我们在为中国企业境外收购(包括在德收购)提供法律咨询服务以及为德国企业在中国的投资活动提供咨询服务方面具有非常丰富的经验。

我们在德国设立的中国业务组与高伟绅的中国代表处密切协作,并且我们在各全球分支机构均设有专门专责中国业务的团队,因此我们能在各类跨各大主要市场、涉及多个司法辖区的战略性、挑战性交易中为客户提供法律服务。
