Crowell & Moring’s lawyers and policy professionals in Shanghai, the C&M International office in Singapore and across the firm’s U.S. offices advise multinational corporations throughout the Asia Pacific and globally. Our attorneys regularly advise on cross-border matters in industry sectors, including defense, financial services, private equity, manufacturing, retail, and transportation.


In China, our lawyers and professionals advise clients with complex, cross-border transactions and investments, particularly those that involve the potential conflict of US/EU/UK law and quickly evolving Chinese law, including the Antiforeign Sanctions Law, Export Control Law, the PRC Company Law and the PRC Cybersecurity Law. We also assist Chinese companies in the intellectual property space by assisting their intellectual property protection and with respect to assertions of infringement of their products. We regularly work with our colleagues in other offices on regulatory matters involving China and other jurisdictions in areas such as antitrust and competition, US international trade, international tax, biotech, cybersecurity and privacy, retail, labor and employment, intellectual property, internal investigations, international arbitration, and commercial litigation.
