Risk Management

Businesses operating in China's developing regulatory and legal systems are subject to a wide range of risks.  Unclear government regulations have led companies to make investments that were later declared illegal.  In other situations, China's incomplete rule of law has left investors unprotected when partners fail to properly follow-through with agreements.  Although China's accession to the WTO promises to improve intellectual property protection, the country is still infamous for IPR violations.

The Risk Management Group draws on first-hand experience to help clients prevent problems, improve protection of investments and interests, define effective strategies when problems arise and develop cost-effective solutions tailored to meet their specific needs.  Our integrated approach to risk management takes full advantage of key contacts in government and industry, integral components to understanding the client's situation and to rectifying problems.
