Experience / Compliance
China’s legal environment is evolving rapidly, due in part to increased governmental and regulatory scrutiny of established and emerging business activities. Ensuring compliance with increasingly complex laws and rules often involves obtaining government approvals and responding to investigations and sanctions across a broad spectrum of regulations, including antitrust, white-collar crime, anti-bribery and anti-corruption, tax, customs, foreign exchange and quality control requirements.
