Crowell’s lawyers and professionals in Shanghai and across the firm’s U.S. offices advise multinational corporations on doing business throughout the Asia-Pacific region, and Asia-based companies on issues in the U.S., EU, and beyond. Our attorneys regularly advise on cross-border matters in industry sectors, including defense, financial services, private equity, manufacturing, retail, and transportation. We also work closely with our colleagues in C&M International’s office in Singapore on government relations, public policy, and public affairs matters.


In China, our lawyers and professionals advise clients with complex, cross-border transactions and investments, particularly those that involve the potential conflict of U.S./EU/UK law and quickly evolving Chinese law relating to issues such as sanctions, export control, data privacy and cybersecurity. We also assist Chinese companies with 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, U.S. international trade, international tax, biotech, cybersecurity and privacy, retail, labor and employment, intellectual property, internal investigations, international arbitration, and commercial litigation.
