Sullivan & Cromwell established its Beijing office in 1999 and was among the very first top-tier Wall Street firms to have an office in mainland China. Today, the Beijing office provides a critical in-country platform to serve our Chinese and multinational clients on a wide range of cross-border M&A and private equity transactions, as well as on securities offerings, debt securities offerings and other complex financing matters. Lawyers in the Beijing office work as one team with colleagues in the Hong Kong and other offices and provide both U.S. and Hong Kong law advice.
Effectively leveraging the Firm's global expertise and resources, lawyers in the Beijing office often take the lead in managing multijurisdictional teams on transactions that have a China focus along with key assets, interested parties or regulatory aspects in the United States, Europe, the Middle East or elsewhere around the world.
Our lawyers in Beijing come from a wide range of backgrounds. Each has studied at top-tier universities in China and in the United States and has international experience, with some previously having worked and lived in the United States and Hong Kong.
