Founded in 1993, Zhong Lun Law Firm was one of the first private law partnerships to receive approval from the Ministry of Justice. After years of rapid development and steady growth, today Zhong Lun is one of the largest full service law firms in China. With over 260 partners and over 1200 professionals working in fifteen offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Wuhan, Chengdu, Chongqing, Qingdao, Hangzhou, Tokyo, Hong Kong, London, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, Zhong Lun is capable of providing clients with high-quality legal services in more than 60 countries across a wide range of industries and sectors through our specialized expertise and close teamwork.
With a strong entrepreneurial spirit, Zhong Lun partners join their clients at the front lines to actively resolve disputes and transactional issues. Through their dedication Zhonglun has achieved a leading market position today. In recent years, the number of Zhong Lun partners recognized by Chambers Asia-Pacific industry guides has surpassed all other Chinese law firms. We also share a collaborative spirit and are structured to ensure that only the most appropriate professional team takes responsibility for your case.
We are proud of our achievements, but we know we still have room to grow. Our continued investment in management systems, technology development and in-house training has laid a solid foundation for the future. Our efforts not only continue to open new frontiers in the domestic market, but also to lead our Chinese clients to go further in the field of overseas investment. Through our cooperative networks with first tier national and regional law firms, we strive to be the leading foreign investment law firm.
Our vision is to forge Zhong Lun into China’s best law firm and to actively participate in the process of promoting the rule of law in China.
Our partners actively contribute to the development of China's legal industry. Zhonglun's founding partner, Zhang Xuebing, served twice as the president of the influential Beijing Lawyers Association and is currently the vice president of the All-China Lawyers Association. Many of our other partners also hold leadership positions with bar associations throughout China and act as mentors for legal practitioners across the country and as guides for domestic and foreign businesses, imparting substantive legal knowledge as well as practice skills.
As a large-scale full service law firm, Zhong Lun pays special attention to social responsibility and public feedback. In the early days, Zhonglun conscientiously joined a number of social welfare causes. The Zhong Lun Charity Foundation was established on 7 May 2014 with the approval of Beijing Civil Affairs Bureau. Formerly established as a charitable fund inside Zhong Lun in early 2010, the foundation has evolved through the years. Thanks to the tireless efforts of Zhong Lun’s partners, associates and staff, the foundation has grown into an official charity with increased fundraising, enlarged and diversified operations, improved governance and project management, and a full set of well-established policies and rules.
