Compliance & Anti-corruption

Our compliance and anti-corruption group houses nearly 40 partners and over 100 associates, an impressive scale that gives the practice a distinct competitive edge. Many of our practitioners came from legislature, public security authorities, procuratorates, or courts, or worked for various regulatory bodies such as market monitoring, finance, tax, or customs authorities, or served as senior officers at multinationals, giving the group rich experience in PRC laws, broad international outlook, and diverse expertise. Our global breadth is also reflected in our lawyers’ impressive overseas educational background, considerable overseas work experience, and bar admissions in multiple jurisdictions, which allows us to provide full-range and one-stop international services.

 

We have long been favored by high-end clients in compliance and anti-corruption work. Acting or having acted as legal counsel for the Ministry of Justice, People’s Bank of China, China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission, Ministry of Commerce, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Natural Resources, and other regulatory bodies, we have a sound grasp of regulatory policies. In addition, central enterprises, multinationals, and large private companies also feature on our client roster for compliance matters, giving us deep insight into operational models of various industries, including construction, mechanics, aviation, energy, food, pharmacy, clothing, luxury goods, and natural resources. Our group has handled a host of compliance and anti-corruption mandates, including establishment of compliance system, response to joint investigations conducted by multiple jurisdictions, response to investigations and sanctions by multilateral financial institutions, and comprehensive management and control of major compliance crises, showcasing our stellar performance when dealing with high-profile, challenging, and complex matters. Due to our impeccable work in this area, we have received strong recommendations for years from well-reputed rating agencies, including Chambers Asia-Pacific, The Legal 500, China Business Law Journal, and Asialaw Profiles.
