Mr. Xue Haibin, the managing partner of the London Office of Zhong Lun Law Firm, recently chaired a panel discussion at the Legal Week Global Independent Law Firms Forum. The Forum was held in London on 20th March 2014 and was attended by delegates from across Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America and the United States.
Mr. Xue led a discussion that addressed the major opportunities and challenges faced by independent law firms hoping to succeed in Asia. With the rapid development of Asian markets, it is vitally important for independent law firms to understand how to secure outbound and inbound legal work in these key regional markets. He also focused on the importance of establishing a local referral network with local law firms in order to gain access to the legal market in China.
